    The view is beautiful but the service was absolutely awful and the food was only average. The drinks are good though. Good place to just come for a drink and enjoy the view.

    As soon as we arrived someone greeted us and directed us to a great table by the window. Our waiter was attentive to our needs. The food tasted great . There was a misunderstanding on one dish but it was corrected very quickly. Will definitely go back.

    Our server on the night of December 8th was absolutely phenomenal! She catered to all our needs so professionally and politely and the food was great! This was for my 21st birthday dinner and me and my friends were very satisfied. Would highly recommend to others! Thank you

    Location, Location, LOCATION! That's why we went, and if we return, that will be why we return. The food was SO-SO. We waited a very long time for our order to be delivered - much longer than surrounding tables. By the time it came, the restaurant was nearly empty and it was almost completely dark outside (we were on the patio). There were no candles on tables, but our servers did their best to provide candles/low lighting when we asked (but we had to ask). Our server - Natasha - was lovely. I don't think it was her fault that the meals took so long to arrive. She was friendly, knowledgeable of the menu, helpful and accommodating. All of that said, the calibre of the food itself and the slow delivery, will not compel us to return.

    We really enjoyed our evening except that we waited a very long time for our food to arrive. The restaurant was not excessively busy and there was quite a pause between the first five meals coming out - already a long wait- to the final and sixth meal.

    We were there for a group celebration - all of us turning 50 this year and 35+ years of friendship. We made a reservation and, while we had some challenges with one blonde female waitress being able to assist on arrival when asked for a table on the almost empty patio, the rest of the evening was wonderful. How can you go wrong with a great patio right on the lake....and our waitress, Megan, was awesome! The service Megan gave us was great... and she put up with us, which couldn't have been easy...all with a smile.

    Food was pretty good, it was odd that one person in our group had a different menu from everyone else and they took a very long time to bring me my drink while everyone else had theirs.
