Stopped by mid-week for a quick bite to eat. Ordered seafood bisque and ceasar salad. The soup was tremendous. The salad tasted like vinegar was poured all over it. It wasn't a ceasar salad at all. I returned it and asked for a plain side salad with bleu cheese dressing. The salad came with tasteless dressing as if it was... More

Breakfast in The Shore at the start of a busy day and the omellette, fingerling potatos and coffee were all great. Great presentation and great atmosphere, even though it was dreary outside. Love to be here in the summer or fall!

Met with friends for a chatty lunch and this place was so nice to talk on well after we finished eating. Service in terms of delivering our meals was a bit slow compared to those who came in well after us but we weren't if a huge hurry. Food was good, I love their individual quiches and a couple other... More

The food was pretty good. I had breakfast at the restaurant. I enjoyed their Greek yogurt with granola. I went to the restaurant more than once during my stay. I visited the bar, and had a crab cake for lunch. My husband enjoyed a beet salad and duck ravioli. While at the bar, Justin provided great service! I would definitely... More

We came here for a rehearsal dinner for a wedding. The food was absolutely delicious. The view was great, and the lighting outside made it so special. My only downfall is the bartender was cursing at a waitress as I was waiting order a soda, and even after waiting 15 minutes we never did get a soda from the bar.... More

sat on the patio overlooking the lake while dining for dinner. Had the salmon and it was exquisite, if a bit pricey. Eaten here many times and the food/service is always good.

I attended a wedding reception here. What a great place by the lake. Room outside for gatherings, the banquet rooms and hotel rooms are clean and pretty. The outside tiki bar is great.

We ate outside with a gorgeous view of the lake on a lovely late summer evening. The place was nearly empty - maybe 5 tables total the whole time we were there - with 2 servers on duty. It took our server 30 minutes to tell me the bar was out of compari and an additional 15 minutes after that... More

Well, it was a disappointment. I have dined here several times in the past 4 years. Today it took over 90 minutes for a simple lunch for 3. The server, although very nice, kept forgetting our orders, sides, drinks. It took so long for her to pick up the check, we had to ask another server to call her. Each... More
