It's a young persons bar probably a lot of fun at night but the food is all deep fried and typical bar food

Cute little lakeside bar & restaurant. We had bacon cheeseburgers. They were good but different they had Canadian bacon on them. The onion rings were delicious. We fished off the piers. Service was great and friendly. Very kid friendly outside area.

Hello Sonia Thanks for your review! We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. The bacon is oval - it is shoulder bacon - works great on a burger! Hope you can come for lunch and fishing again very soon!
