The only problem we had was that we passed the building and had to turn around. The food, service and atmosphere were amazing. Our steak was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive. We enjoyed looking at all the lighthouses in the glass cases.

Happy hour out on the patio was lovely. It was a crisp fall day. The firepit was on and we had an amazing lake view. You can easily drop $50 on appetizers and dessert without alcoholic beverages but it is a nice treat.

A Christmas celebration turned into a crappy evening! Indifferent waitress, awful owner and slow service made for an awkward evening. Don't go there and try to use your Groupon because they will screw you out of using it- the owner obviously isn't concerned about your repeat business because he was completely unwilling to accommodate our request. Will be back only... More

The steak was very good, but you can get a good steak anywhere for a lot less. You come to this place for the ambiance and special experience. It had been many years since we had been and when we saw a Groupon, we thought it would be a good place to celebrate a special occasion. We made reservations, drove... More

The food is great but the wait ruins it all. The service is beyond slow, the slowest I have ever experienced at any establishment. Nearly 30 minutes from the time a drink was ordered to when it was brought out. Over an hour and a half from when the meal was ordered to when it was brought out. The staff... More

Beautiful setting on the lake - the bread, salad and entree were all perfection. The staff, from the minute you walk in the door, are superb. The decor is a bit tired. We'd recommend subtle lighting; at the very least, dim the current lights. Simply removing the tired carpet and replacing it with hard wood would update the interior nicely.... More

Rarly ever came except to drop food off at table .. and didn't get food right ... and when I asked if she could bring some butter... More

Normally g&g is very good. We normally visit on a Friday or Saturday night when reg help is there. This time met friends. We shared apps. And soup and I ordered the salmon. It was way overdone(charred) and had been seasoned heavily with salt. Too burned and too much salt. Wud have mentioned to our waitress but she didn't come... More
