If your looking for a place to eat with stunning views, this is the place. Although under new ownership since 2014, this restaurant is no longer called Spikes. Food is bar fair type hit or miss.

Loved the pizza - my picky kids and husband loved it. A little pricy, but worth it :) We just went with a basic pepperoni, but were surprised by how much we liked it!

Now known as Woodstone, the restaurant is very nice and side with good service. However I found the food, both the pizza and entrée I had, to be quite average. I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of thin pizza but I found theirs to be lacking flavor. Not a bad place by any means, just think there are a number... More

This place was excellent. The pizza was very good. Good sauce and even the crust was done perfect. Pepperoni was especially done well. I'd recommend this place for sure. Good service. Great view.

Their silo salad seemed tasty from the menu description, but the server disappeared before I realized there wasn't any lemon/fig dressing. My wife's walleye appeared at the same time, so I began eating my dry salad. The server didn't re-appear until we had finished. My wife says the walleye was very good, but her side salad also lacked dressing. Plus,... More

The restaurant was installing a new sign/ new name as we were eating. The views are tremendous. My food was wonderful, but my spouse's shrimp was hard so we can't give the restaurant 5 stars. Good luck with the new name!!!

My wife was very happy with her filet, I enjoyed the Mahi Mahi, the view was great overlooking the first tee, and no complaint with the drinks.
