Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Live music and good view of the lake. Service was quick, especially for the size of the crowd. The restaurant was packed. Very laid back atmosphere. Recommend the catfish, though everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

If your looking for fried food, here is where you come. I don't particularly like the food, but anything that will fill you up after some time on the lake or after plenty of Adult Beverages has to taste good. They've expanded since I've been there, if your a college student or someone in a budget don't come here to... More

Great atmosphere and easy access by boat or vehicle. Food is good but a little pricy. Alcoholic beverages served as well. Catfish plate, gumbo and hamburgers are all good. Kids love feeding the ducks, geese, turtles and extremely large carp with anything left over on the plate. Nothing goes wasted. Conveniently located near Tims Ford State park, home of the... More

Don't go. I went for the Cajun boil. I got there and it was whole shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. The sausage was cut thin so when cooked it was dried out and tough. potatoes were over cooked. I am not a fan of shrimp with the heads but I tried them, They didn't have any flavor and neither did... More

Good was excellent. Came out to see the Monty-Hill Band. It's so relaxing to have a nice dinner overlooking the lake and good music. Monty-Hill gets better every time we come out to see them. The food and service was excellent. Jordan H. went out of his way to get us seated.

As a restaurant literally floating on the lake, I expected there to be fresh fish, caught that morning by local fisherman. No, just shrimp (obviously not from the area) and the same fried catfish you can get from any BBQ joint. Not to sound full of myself, but I make better fried catfish at home. Hush puppies were not bad,... More

Crowded on a Friday night but not waiting for a table crowded. Interesting location on the water where you can feed the fish and water fowl. Good dishes with attentive service. Lots of TV's.

We enjoyed a relaxing meal here after a full day of touring in Lynchburg, TN. Kate was truly delightful! She offered suggestions for our dinner meal. Afterward, we wished we'd ordered what she suggested. The hamburger steak and gumbo was only average. She had suggested the seafood tacos. Hope to come back and try those!

Average food for above average prices. Great atmosphere. Parking is poor. Water access is average. Beer, tea, soft drink options. Catfish, fish tacos and Po Boys are local favorites
