This is our first visit. The staff was very polite and helpful. I had the New York rueben sandwich with fries. Lots of thickly sliced pastrami on marbled rye bread. It was great! My husband had the fish and sweet potato fries. He said the...More

My husband and I went for dinner. We split a pasta dish. I don't eat much and we still had more than enough left. The portion was huge. Everything on the menu is very expensive. Wonderful view of the lake.

The steak that I had was fantastic but, in my opinion, the best experiences of the night were the desserts, watching the sunset over the lake, and the service. Jake was our server for the night and we made some conversation with him. He was...More

Beautiful view and decor and had a wonderful server. Jake was funny and talk enough to show a likable personality but not so much to be intrusive.

You would be welcome in shorts or just about anything you feel comfortable in.
this restaurant has a great reputation for the food and service. I find them to be right on. The food is presented well and is worth the trip. You are for sure paying for that special little treatment. Do you have any set specials for the people that maybe don't have $100 bucks to drop to walk in the place? And is your distributors local or shipped in?
