The restaurant was able to accommodate our large group for lunch, as well as other large groups. The menu was limited, unless ordering the buffet. The waitress we had was wonderful and very attentive. My burger was cooked perfectly. My husband's fish sandwich was cold....More

I apologize for the staffing issue on this shift. We take pride in our food service. The view and setting with fireplaces etc. are very nice and we suggest that our guests relax and enjoy it. On this day we did have some staffing issues...More

While the weather wasn't the best, the lakefront dining still created wonderful atmosphere and the food and service was good. I had lobster, which was moist and tasty but the sweet potato fries were over-cooked. My green salad was fresh with nice greens and good...More
