Retro-type burger and frozen custard joint. Reasonable prices and modest menu options. Retro deco to peruse while waiting and eating. Great value and the lake is across the street!

Michael's is pricey ($8 milkshake??) but delicious. I really like the veggie burger and overall you can tell the ingredients are high quality. Really nice staff, too!
