This place offers a beautiful scenery on Lake Erie, and good food while you are there. I especially Love their wood oven pizzas, and some of the unique tasting appetizers on the menu. The meal I got was the pasta alfredo, which was very good, and you could tell the sauce was freshly made. It's still a toss up in... More

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant with fantastic patio views during the spring, summer and fall of the Lake. In the winter the wonderful food and service help make up for not being able to sit outside. The quality and portions of food are unbelievable in conjunction with wonderful service.

We have dines for breakfast and visited the bar for our night caps of local wine flavors and varieties. Breakfasts were most deffinately filling and of a good portion size for the amount of items you get you should never leave hungry. I recommend the Gingerbread waffles withpecans and maple syrup.

Sat at the bar to have a drink and ended up enjoying dinner. The bartenders were all very pleasant and helpful. They were fun to chat with and their recommendations for food were perfect. The windows face outside to the beautiful gardens and a bit of the view of Lake Erie. Great food, great price and great service.
