We love this place for the atmosphere and food is about the best in the area. Sit outside and view the lake, see the pit fire in cooler weather.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to my daughter's camp. Food was great- avocado BLT, burger, and lobster roll special were all very good! Desserts were good, but not amazing. Excellent view of the lake from the restaurant, and great staff!

The food was better than average and I enjoyed my meal. The facility was beautiful and there was a very nice view of the lake. Server was polite if less than enthusiastic.

Cozy restaurant with North Woods décor. Great lobster choices and lobster bisque. Lobster rolls were a hit and my Haddock sandwich was huge.
