This was an off season visit so it was not crowded. The service was good and food was great. The view of the lake is an added pleasure. One visit in our 1 week stay.

Wonderful view with good food. One usually doesn't expect good fresh seafood inland. The service along with the food was great, a place I would go back to again.

You are right on the water. You can see the water from almost every table in the restaurant. Menu also has non-seafood options like grilled chicken, po-boys, and burgers.
