Real gem of a place. I had the Pan Fried Walleye. Walleye is coated in panko and almond breading finished with a lemon Beurre Blanc. It was so good. Super attentive staff. So glad we found it by accident.$$$-$$$$

The food is very good. The ambiance is great. The service was average. We had a to ask the waitress for refills and for a another drink. You get better attention at an Apple Bee's or a Chili's. Better service would have made this review...More
