18 of us had traveled from all states for great seafood. This wasn't the place. Food was expensive and not worth the price.

If you are looking for attentive, table-side service in a quiet atmosphere with haute cuisine, don't go to the Big Catch. But if you like a very casual, summer lakeside atmosphere from a seasonal burger and ice cream take-out/eat-in place, then this is the place...More
