Hubby had the lobster roll- filled with lots of meat and delicious. I had the Lake Perch and it was delicious too. Their tartar sauce and homemade chips are great, too. All in all a great experience. Our Server, Kelsey, did an excellent job!

We loved everything we ordered here, especially the lobster bisque! We had a relaxing lunch with a view of the lake and Perry's tower. My kids enjoyed their food too.

Yes, we have 2 and they accompanied us. There are a lot of restaurants on the boardwalk so they do not like them near there so we just skirted the edges.
