Wallers has a great (albeit shorter!) menu with a great view of the lake. They offer dynamite BBQ, steamed shrimp, crab legs, and karaoke at night...a fun place to relax and spend some informal afternoon or evening hours!

Exactly what you would want from a dockside restaurant. Great food (especially the barbecue), friendly people and right on the water. Come by boat or car for an enjoyable meal.

Wallers is a quaint place on the water at one of the local marinas. It is not fancy but you will enjoy the food and the family atmosphere. Wallers is one of the favorites for the locals. Inside and outside seating. Fire pits for chilly evenings, and the beer is always cold. Wallers is always agreat place to take friends... More
