This is not luxury dining yet a nice atmosphere with views of lake Pleasant. Good menu selection. I had a crisp salad with good greens (no iceberg lettuce). Tempting dessert menu but I was able to resist.

Speculator is probably not known for food but the inn delivers a basic good meal. Service was attentive and warm. Food was substantial and good. You get the basics,with a bit of adventurous dining.

Great burgers. Cozy, friendly. Had a neighborhood feel even though it's probably visitors like us passing through. We look forward to our next visit.

I had shrimp scampi and my husband had a burger. We left totally satisfied with both dishes. Sauce for shrimp scampi was rich and buttery, great balance of garlic and lemon in it. Shrimps were cooked just right, pasta was not overcooked as well. Burger...More
