We were happy with our sandwiches and wraps..nothing special but good. The fries were really good as well. After dinner we went to,the bar to listen to the music and have more... More

We recently had an informal cocktail party for 18 people. Hors d'euvres included cheese and crackers, a veggie platter, two types of wings, and potato wedges. Our server, Nadine, could not have been more attentive. Several people commented favorably on the wings and wedges.

Been here several times, mostly in the summer season so we can sit outside by Coventry Lake. Good cocktails & friendly staff. Food is ok, salads are GREAT. Sometimes they have light entertainment

We stopped in the middle of the afternoon for lunch and a few beers. We were the only people in the bar and met the owner and his wife who were lovely. The atmosphere is very nice and our food was delicious. My husband had a steak sandwich and I had the turkey melt panini. They both came with fries... More

I read the reviews and what someone was complaining about was chicken parmigiana and another dish. Well we normally don't eat that. I read that they were known for seafood which we all love. So one Autumn day we picked up our nieces from UCONN and decided to have lunch there since it was waterview dining. The dining room was... More

My mother had a horrible sandwich and when I brought it to their attention they said she should have eaten the other half. It was nothing but fat in a French Dip sandwich and they served it with NO au jus. We had to ask them to bring it. The food is terrible for the prices they are charging. The... More

My husband and I eat here for a special treat, often with friends, and find it to be a very enjoyable time eating on their outdoor patio overlooking the lake. A few days ago when we were there, we looked over the Special of the Day and saw stuffed green peppers, which we ordered. The meal came with pasta but... More

I love the location, but the prices are too expensive for us and our four kids. Take a look at the menu before sitting down for a meal. The food is good, but too $$$.
