Horrible place to eat. Terrible service. The restaurant was empty, but was full with reservations ? 1 hour to wait for appetizers ??? Manager did nothing but avoid the situation.

Great food, great service, and wonderful views of the lake. Well worth the visit. The staff are knowledgeable; they know the area, the food, and the libations. Good choice.
