We were here for a Birthday celebration and were very impressed with the staff and the fabulous food. The best part may have been the plethora of Dr. Frank wine they had available.

Some of the food was not the best. The Wok Noodles were pretty good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Environment was so-so. Overly expensive for atmosphere and food.

Not that that has anything to do with the food. Paige was our server and very good. The halibut special was slightly over cooked but flavorful and had 4 nice size chunks of lobster on top. The veggie mix wasn't your standard squash, it had shaved sautéed brussel sprouts and green beans. Strip steak special was large, but more medium... More

We were staying next door at the Hampton Inn and asked about this restaurant when checking in. The girl at check in hadn't eaten there herself, but said she's been sending people over there.

We thought the food was wonderful: crab claws were to die for; duck was well done and nicely presented. Only things we didn't like is the slowness of wait staff; and the fact that between 4pm and 5pm you can't get any food except appetizers because they're "switching the kitchen". Never heard of anything like that. Nice view of lake... More

Food is good but not great. Very expensive for a casual place. Portions on some items like rib eye steak were very large but. Scallops were skimpy. Caesar salad was good but not great.
