Great food and bar! Grill to your own liking! Impressive in-house wood grill in the middle of the restaurant. Spectacular views of Houghton Lake, pool and arcade games and more.

Nice view of the lake. Our waitress was very nice but very unknowledgelable, did not know the draft beer selections as well as most of the menu. Ordered a well done steak was sent back to be cooked more, it returned to still be medium. It was not seasoned at all and the quality was poor for a $20 small... More

Strikes me as more of a Saturday Night Party Bar that happens to serve good food too. I had an excellent steak and my wife had the mahi fish tacos. My steak was grilled exactly as I ordered it, the mahi tacos were a little messy and too juicy.

We came here for a date night, thinking it would be nice sitting out by the lake and enjoying a nice dinner. The view was indeed beautiful, but it ends there. The food was actually terrible. We also both ordered blended drinks, whichwe rarely do, and they were terrible too. A few weeks later, my daughter and her boyfriend came... More

Our attitude is positive, looking to make the best out of things. Upon arrival, at 6:15...there were approx 15 tables occupied. (Approx 1/3 of the establishments' seating) We waited an hr for our food (bison burger and Mahi fish). Our drinks sat empty for over 15mins. No music for backdrop sound. When our food finally arrived, fish was cold and... More

The service was good. The food was just ok. Not a lot of flavor and not hot. My husband had the Cajun chicken Alfredo - not very flavorful. You got one side with the dishes but a salad was extra.

Nice place for a great view of Houghton Lake and a burger!! When at the lake you might as well be able to see the water. Decent price but under staffed on a Sunday afternoon.

Thank Dean T
