Nice place to go for drinks or dinner. They also have live music on some days. The food was very good and the atmosphere nice. Our waitress was a little unfriendly, seemed like she didn't want to be there.

Nice Irish style pub. Good steaks and burgers. Excellent service and fair prices. The atmosphere is nice to spend a quiet evening, or at other times sit outside and enjoy the lake and sunset.
