Beautiful deck views of the lake! We have always had good service. Really like the bands that have played there in summer. Good BBQ ribs, bbq pork sandwich, fish fry and delicious appetizers. We had good service. Relaxing atmosphere!

I love how they have deck heaters all over the place. I unfortunately get cold easily so it's The really a plus that one can enjoy dining on the deck in front of the water even when its a little nippy put. Food is decent, my favorite so far is the ceviche.
