Went last night with friends, food was delicious and service was over the top. We were lucky enough to have been seated by window which overlooks lake, and although it was evening was still delightful. We will be returning soon to enjoy this establishment again.

Service was exceptional. View was nice . Food was delicious. It was off season, so there was no wait (we've heard it can get very busy and they don't take reservations). Our waiter was very helpful. All around, a good meal.
