Service was good but we were the first customers. Food was average. Portions were large but not especially tasty.

Enjoyed the planked whitefish dinner, but the highlight was the puree of parsnip soup du jour: full of vegetables and great texture, not full of cream. The smashed potatoes and side Caesar salad were also great. Service very good, Will definitely return and try the...More

Tasty pizza. Fantastic server. Close to lake and river. Place feels like stepping back in time, like a place grandparents went to for a fancy dinner when they were young.

We had the $17 pepperoni pizza and were simply underwhelmed. Too little pepperoni, cheese or sauce- lots of bread. The service was unenthusiastic. Example: question- "do you have any Parmesan cheese?" Answer- "No". But the place appeared clean and freshly redecorated. Good beer list. We'll...More
