An old friend suggested we meet for lunch. Perfect day - sunny, hot and calm wind. Enjoyed lunch while watching the boaters. The blackened grouper sandwich was very good. Good portion. We had an order of oysters as well.

Went for drinks and food. Had a blackened Grouper sandwich, it was really good everyone else had burgers and fries. Fries were great and burgers were good.

This used to be one of my favorite dive bars. Oysters and beer were ten cents during happy hour. Times have changed. The food is only so so and the place has gotten old and stale. I suppose I have too, but I have found better watering holes.

Location is great, directly on the lake. Been there on a Saturday evening, staff was very slow, it wasn’t too busy but it took them about 15 Minutes to turn up. We left the Pub after a drug dealer walked from table to table to offer his stuff. Bar staff seems to know those guys but didn’t care...

We ending leaving after just a few minutes because the smoke was so thick. We left the drinks we ordered on the bar and walked out. I could still smell the smoke in my hair hours later after spending less than five minutes in the bar.

We have gone here several times as it is on a lake and has a gorgeous view. However, each and every time we have been here, the service is bad. All of the staff we have ever had had been unfriendly and at times, downright rude. And they are quite slow. We have gone back hoping that things would improve,... More

Food it just okay but I gave it 4 anyway because of the staff and atmosphere. The sunsets are amazing. The crowd is local and it has a bit of a cheers vibe. We used to go here for free poker, but they are not currently offering it.
