From the Dill Pickle & Chicken soup which was extremely good, to the Colossal Shrimp Dinner everything was delicious. Thank you for a very pleasant dinner.

Sparkling Waters has always been top notch. Be sure to eat Walleye. Not sure how much longer the restaurant will be open so be sure to eat there before they close!

The decor very dated,this could be excused but the service also slow and the food was just bad. Salad in puddle of water on plate. Raw hamburger. Witnessed other patrons send food back. They left without eating as did we. Avoid.

The restaurant was a beautiful find on my visit from NY. There were easy choices for the kids and the ahi tuna salad that was recommended was amazing.
