Customer service was atrocious at best, and I’m used to how bad the northeast is for its customer service. No one smiled unless they knew the person walking in. All I wanted was a snack, a drink, and to enjoy the waterfront. I could hardly...More

This restaurant was a big disappointment. The food was tasteless (and lukewarm), the service barely adequate, and the house wine awful. Prices were high. Nice view of the lake is the only positive thing I can think of. We won't be back.

No. It's a very casual atmosphere. Just check there open dates and hours before going, as they're a seasonal restaurant.

Not sure if you're asking about the restaurant or the boats. I don't think dogs are permitted on the boats. One the restaurant deck or patio, any dog is welcome.
