It' too bad this place is closed. It sits on an excellent piece of the lake. We've heard several reasons it closed but it was a good place when it was open.

Visited here with family. Sat outside, seemed like cigarette smoke on the inside. Service was average at best. Food was average at best. Seemed to be more of a bar food sort of scene. Wasn't terrible or a place I wouldn't come back to. We come because it is accessible by boat. Will probably come back just for a change... More

The place needs a facelift. It is located right on the lake and has a a weekly fishing tournament. The food was a little better than fast food and the tacos were pretty good.

If you are into cigarette smoke and waiters that are more into talking to each other than service, then this is the place for you. Food is regular lake food. Priced fine. But service is poor and the smell is horrible from the cigarette smoke and lack of proper AC.

I had to ask for water 3 times before the manager brought it out, we ordered chips/salsa as an appetizer that didn't come out till after our meal again by the manager. The waitress only checked on us once. I asked for... More

Great Lake view and that's it. Dirty, understaffed and very average food. Wings were dry. Fries not noteworthy. I probably won't return, not even for view.

Thank Rick F
