We enjoy the delicious, well-prepared food alongside impeccable service and homey atmosphere. The view if the lake is amazing and in the summer, sitting outside next to the water is a special treat. We go there at least once or twice per month.

One of the best dinners we have had in a long time! Started with an excellent cocktail called Passion Chill. The appetizer and salads were fresh and delicious. The scallops and walleye were scrumptious! And the chocolate soufflé was perfect!
