Casual dining right on the water! Food is just average, but you can't beat the convenience and the view. Try the beer cheese dip and one of the icy specialty drinks.

Great atmosphere and easy access by boat or vehicle. Food is good but a little pricy. Alcoholic beverages served as well. Catfish plate, gumbo and hamburgers are all good. Kids love feeding the ducks, geese, turtles and extremely large carp with anything left over on...More

Don't go. I went for the Cajun boil. I got there and it was whole shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. The sausage was cut thin so when cooked it was dried out and tough. potatoes were over cooked. I am not a fan of shrimp...More
