Other than the lobster bisque food is not worth the money. Wait staff is bordering on rude. Intoxicated patrons are allowed to behave obnoxiously. Not somewhere I'd ever go again.

Well known for their awesome Lobster bisque... it is a must have! Large chunks of lobster and plenty of it per cup. Have thoroughly enjoyed everything we have ordered and their crème brulee is to die for... good seafood and great view of the lake...More

I had looked at this place on TA before our trip and liked most of what I read but honestly had a few other places to try up here on our short visit. I'm sure the Keys would have been wonderful but with them closed...More

A perfect view of the lake. We always get the lobster bisque. It actually has real lobster in it and is excellent. Much of the other food looks great, but we never get past the bisque. The best ever.

Yes, we have 2 and they accompanied us. There are a lot of restaurants on the boardwalk so they do not like them near there so we just skirted the edges.
