I had a bad experience with them a few years back, but they have added beer battered fish back onto their menu. I did not like the crumbled. Chips were also excellent--way better than average.

Great food, cold beer and wine. Family picnic ambience with kids dogs frisbees and overly loud music. If this is you, you will enjoy a lunch on the lawn by the lake.
