Right on Lake Huron, you can get a table by the window or outside to enjoy the beautiful lake. Small place with very small booths and tables. Hard to fit four at the tables, especially with the amount of food you get. Reasonably priced dinners...More

Hi, yes there is a beautiful view of the lake. It actually sits right on the lake and has a nice little deck you can sit on and overlook it. You can also see it from the inside of the restaurant. They do not serve alcohol.
