What a great place to enjoy company of friends, the beautiful scenery of Lake Pend Oreille, and great food. Starting with a great wine and beer selection, a large variety of items on the menu and great daily specials. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. The desserts are also quite tasty. You can also mingle among the locals... More

Our friends have been telling us about this place for years and we finally found ourselves in the area and went for drinks & appies and then back later for dinner. Everything was great - beer, bloodies, and wine - all good. We had edamame, the shrimp appetizer and calamari - yumm! For dinner I had a fabulous vegan dish... More

We were out on the boat for several hours and came here for dinner. Casual attire fine. Can boat right up. Unique atmosphere with some local flavor on the menu. Hostess seemed overwhelmed and unfriendly. Would recommend reservations for this reason. Wait person was equally unimpressed with serving us at first but she seemed to warm up. Food was pretty...

Very disappointed....we had been looking forward to taking our aunt and uncle to this restaurant while out on our boat. The service was very slow even though there weren't that many customers. My husband and I had the crab cakes which were horrible. They were square, thin, deep fried and full of grease. Our uncle had a Mediterranean wrap that... More

Let me start out by saying that the food was incredibly good. However the service was horrific. We came at 1 pm and were seated. Waited 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge our existence. Waited another 20 minutes for her to comeback and take our drink order and at which time we ordered our meal too because we didn't... More

We went in between lunch and dinner so the menu was a little limit but we were very welcomed and had a wonderful meal. Nothing like beautiful views, friendly staff, cold drinks, and a good meal!

Wow, it doesm't get any better. Sitting outside on the lake surrounded by boats, watching tiny ripples in the water and children trying to catch a fish while waiting for their meal to be delivered. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The food is over the top. We have tried the pork tenderloin, quite large, more than I could... More

We drove forty miles because this place was touted as a must do in a book of special places in the US that you just should not miss. Location is nice. The restaurant is lacking in decor. The waitress told us the special of the day. It was not special. It was a Shrimp Wrap and South Western Black Bean... More

We always enjoy eating here. This last visit - a cool rainy day - sat outside under the awning and infrared heaters - they also have lap blankets - a nice touch. The view is wonderful - service was great - food was very good.
