Dined here on a business trip. The crab claws were great (especially when you use the bread to sop up all the garlic butter!). Had the cognac filet which was delicious. Highly recommend this spot if you want a great meal.

I wish I remembered. They used to have a sailboat in front of the restaurant, however they do not sit right on the lake. Visit if you get a chance. It is a lovely place frozen in time.
