This is our favorite spot on Fox Lake! The bloody Mary’s are the BEST and it’s pretty crazy how delicious the food is, too! This place has it all... even games to play if you bring kids along! It rocks!

Haven't tried the food yet as recently left. The help of the staff, however, was outstanding when our daughter (who has epilepsy) needed space and courtesy. Phenomenal. Thank you.

Get on your Harley and ride to this destination on the lake. Plenty of outdoor seating as well as indoor. Don't miss the shrimp in the shell, delish. Fun place to watch a game or just sit outside and relax after a long cruise. Great...More
