Cute restaurant. Nice children's menu. Unfortunately I was disappointed in the Greek pasta bake. Sounded wonderful and it is a great concept but all of the great flavor a are baked in the cheese on top so when you get down to the pasta it is just bland.

Great food, fair prices. The staff is so friendly and they will do whatever they can to make you feel welcome. We go there all the time we go to Ohio with a big group of high school students and they always take good care of us. The pizza is great and they have a great selection of good food.... More

People must just go there for the bar or for the pizza. Both looked ok, but there really wasn't much on the menu. It's on our list to avoid.

Thanks for your visit!

We're thankful that you gave us the opportunity to serve you, however, because our staff works incredibly hard to exceed guests' expectations so that they can... More

My husband and I shared the pierogi appetizer which was very good. He had the Tin Goose Burger and loved it, I had the Bleu Burger which was delicious. Their fries are different and very good also. We had a view of the mini golf place it is next to, which would have been fun if it wasn't raining! Server... More

This was our most expensive meal on vacation but not at all worth it. Order was wrong twice. Waitress kept trying to rush us out even though we got there 1 1/2 hours before closing. Cameo Pizza is connected to it and a family fun center. Pizza was average. My kids did love the mini golf though.

Thank you for stopping by, we truly appreciate the visit but are incredibly disappointed to hear how you your visit transpired.

We actually chose this place based on the location. It is on the second floor with a view toward the locks (through the trees). Looks a little sophisticated with white table cloths. We were there for a late lunch and the place was empty. Despite the emptiness the service was rather poor. Our waitress kept disappearing. It didn't help that... More

Very good food at fair prices. Good variety on the menu including pizza, subs and Italian dishes. Especially great place to eat if you are going to putt putt and other amusements next to it.

Wow, the Commodore' Platter was so good. Fresh lake perch and walleye fried perfectly with a very tasty breading, the tartar sauce is tangy and the cole slaw is creamy. If your on the area it is definitely worth the stop. We saw another tables food and the pizza looked good too.
