Have always had the best fried seafood in the area. Open Memorial thru Labor Day. Note...they have been short staffed, 2018 summer, and take out orders in the busy part of the day could take 45 minutes. Plan accordingly.

My daughter, her husband and my husband and I went for car ride to see the sculptured Rocks and stopped here for lunch. Very nice cozy restaurant on New Foundland Lake. Food good and view beautiful. What a life! You can sit inside or outside.

Had the haddock which was flavorful and brought half of it home. You can dock your boat and come right in from the water. Great place for young people.

This is a family-friendly summer staple. There is no pretense about the menu-but the fish is fresh and there are many preparation options. Other offerings include your normal fare: hamburgers, hot dogs, Philly cheese steak heroes, etc. AND tasty onion rings as well as many...More
