Docks on the Rocks.......food was ok, not great. A little pricey for what you get. We ate there 3 separate times as we were guest at the resort. Each time we either missing items, food quality was not great and wait times were long.

For the last several years, the place was called "Duke's Refresher". Apparently there was a riff in the family and the previous name is now on a restaurant in Toronto. So, there is now a new name and a new menu. I could not find...More

We only had time for a quick lunch, but I'd definitely like to go back and have a few drinks on the patio there. I had the San Francisco Treat - burger with goat cheese and onions. Very yummy! It was a Friday afternoon and...More

We enjoyed a great lunch - simple fare - with some unique beer options. The waiter was very helpful with our beer selections. Nice patio overlooking the lake. And right on the grounds of Clevelands House, which is super-convenient.
