Frog legs and shrimp were over cooked and the sauce for the frog legs was very hot! Very downscale setting by the water. Only $5 corkage charge if you bring your wine.

We met friends for lunch. Very popular place apparently for locals. Good selection of lunch items. I had soup of the day - Andouille sausage and bean, paired with a lunch-sized Caesar salad.

There is an outside deck with table service which on an infrequent basis may feature entertainment. Inside, most tables with a view... More

This is a great little spot to have lunch. It's situated on Lake Harris and boats pull up to the dock to dine. It's an all American menu. Nothing special but the food is reliably good.

I had a suspicion that this may be a rough biker place but it turned out to be a pretty good restaurant! The area isn't overwhelmed with fine dining choices to begin with so a good restaurant such as this stands out a little more. This is located on a lake so a table by the windows before sunset would... More
