Stop here for a burger and was not disappointed. The burger was juicy and cooked exactly how I wanted it. It came with chips and a slice of pickle. I could not ask for a better burger.

We ate here for dinner before getting ready to get on a boat ride. The servers were attentive and the food was very good. The view was the best and in open covered air. Would recommend. We like to be out in the fresh air...More

Unfortunately The Lookout Cafe has closed for the season starting on the 19th of September. The recent cool down and post labor day crowds combined with our lovely al fresco dining room have dictated we do so. However our... More
