This is the only boat accessable restaurant on the lake. Pretty good eats and friendly people. Great views of the lake. A little pricey. They have seasonal hours of operation so check before going.

We often go hear for special occasions because the food is very good, portions are good, usually have a very trained attentive waitress/waiter and the view over the lake is so enjoyable. Although the entrance is very hilly, there is a special ramp for handicapped....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is this the type of place you can pull up to with your boat after a long day on the lake with your family? Swim suit cover ups and like-attire ok? We're making our first trip over to the lake and we're curious if this is a good dinner option.
