We were there recently in the gift shop above and decided to try downstairs. Great place to take your time and enjoy the lake view. All the food was good but I really like the barbecue made outside in their own smoker. Neat atmosphere but...More

Came for breakfast on Saturday around 8:30am. It wasn't very busy. It took 30 minutes to get coffee and 55 minutes to get food. People around us had to wait along time also and were ready to leave.

Small. Cramped. Rude server. New server polite but was verbally abused by co-workers in front of me. An hour to get food that was cold. Stay away. A McDonald's sausage biscuit would be better.

This place is a small little restaurant which was not clean. Dusty ceiling fans, dirty sticky tables and a fan in the door to keep cool. It took us exactly 48 minutes from the time we ordered until the time we got our food. The...More
