A nice little restaurant, small banquet center, gift shop, on the edge of Union Lake. Tuscan-like in its build, the ambience is absolutely wonderful. High ceilings, amber gold stucco, expansive patio overlooking the lake. Building is more spectacular than the food, which is typically ok but not memorable. Burgers consistently good, but this place could do so much more with... More

The outdoor setting is lovely in good weather. Unfortunately, the setting is the best part. Foods just ok

Came from out of town to visit family. We had tried in the past to dine here, but found it too busy, especially in the summer with its out of door seating/location . A Sunday in November gave us a table by the window. I would think its casual upscale, not fine dining, but the whole experience was done well.... More

Few places can give you the sensation that you are away from your local digs like this restaurant. Looking out at the water overlooking a patio reminiscent of european farmhouse estate, seated at table with white linen, I was immediately transported to vacations in France or Italy. The ambiance is inviting. The food was fresh and equally impressive. Alcoholic beverages... More

This is a great restaurant - very good food, casual upscale. Nice view of Union Lake with outdoor seating in the summer. The only thing I haven't been happy with, on several occasions, is some of the staff. Have been treated rudely by wait staff more then once. I continue to go because it's worth it!

Top notch service and excellent food made for a fabulous evening for two married couples who frequent a many restaurants looking for just what was offered here! Fine wine, food form the land and the sea and desert for all taste buds-Creme Brulee and Tiramisu! If the weather is not too ugly, the doors open to make this beauty a... More

it is unusual to find all of the items on a menu to be a culinary delight but the chef at this restaurant has managed to do just that. The ambience, the setting on the lake, and the outstanding food especially the desserts make this worthy of more than just 5 stars. An extra bonus is their attached take-out shop... More

This restaurant has both a view and good food. Situated right on Union Lake, it offers both indoor and outdoor seating. One caution about outdoor seating, make sure it will not rain. There is no cover and the tables have to be pushed inside and the overhead door lowered in a storm. This made the small restaurant not only crowded... More

I would definitely go back. We were there for lunch. There were 4 of us, and 3 had the perch; I had the chicken Waldorf. Just the right amount of food for lunch. We all enjoyed it, although i would have liked more of the Waldorf and less lettuce. We shared a piece of carrot cake which was delicious, but... More

When we arrived they told us to get a table would take ~40 minutes so we decided to wait at the bar (an in the worst case eat there). While taking fotos on the terrace (view on the lake) we found out that for sitting outside no waiting was necessary (but you need to order at the bar). As we... More
