I'm not a great fan of sports bars so I must admit that I rolled my eyes a little when I was taken here for dinner. The restaurant area is slightly separate from the sports bar and seemed to be very popular - which is always a good sign. The meal we had was fabulous - much better than expected... More

Yes - it has a Mediterranean flare, but their menu is fairly diverse. I've always been happy with their pizzas, especially the white pizza, and their kabobs/skewers have always been good too. Their HH prices are very competitive - you could go to RTC and pay 3x as much for the same pint. In the warmer months the outside seating... More

Beautiful location. Slow, not so friendly service. We ordered from daily specials, grouper with lemon sauce was excellent, baramundi with tomato and capers was deep fried and tastless, it had skin and hard crust and fish itself was non exciting and very disappointing; it was like eating fish jerky.

Friends suggested this location for dinner. They had made a reservation, but when we got there, the reservation could not be found. Seats were available, however. We were given an outdoor table which had a great view of the lake and we were able to watch the people. We had originally asked to be seated inside but I'm not sure... More

Had some cocktails here while visiting, loved the atmosphere & cocktails. Service was great, can't wait to go back! Hopefully next time we get to try more items off the menu instead of just cocktails!

I eat here about twice per month with a colleague. It is our favorite place to meet, esp. on the weekends when they have a brunch menu. The prices are always reasonable, the food can be tailored to your tastes without hesitation, and the atmosphere is friendly and very well suited to view the water jet in the middle of... More

We scheduled this lunch about a month in advance. We had them do a limited menu for a group of what could be 40 people, only 30 ended up showing up. The food was excellent, for my appetizer I had chicken wings and a gyro for my meal. Both were great since they did not have a desert selection they... More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner! The spanakopita was probably the best I've ever had, and my friend and I had incredible service from start to finish!

Grilled octopus and a big salad which they split into two plates was a perfect lunch. Very pleasant to sit outside under the sun sails and look at the water

During nicer times of this year, this can be a great venue. My experience with both the food and service has always been good and the view of the lake (which is one of the reasons I like this place) is so cheerful.
