Server was friendly and attentive. We just ordered an appetizer and cocktails. The crab cakes were very good. The restaurant is location on the lake has a great view and plenty of dockage for boaters. We recommend and would return.

Love the ability to dine on the Lake on back deck. The lake views are a plus especially if have kids in your party. The food just gets more poor each long span in between visits. Last dinner, my friend got sick after eating

You are right on the water. You can see the water from almost every table in the restaurant. Menu also has non-seafood options like grilled chicken, po-boys, and burgers.
