It is what it is. A country type atmosphere where people are "blue collar", and asking for anything besides cheeseburgers and french fries is unheard of.

Cute tables with palapas on the outdoor deck. Only disappointment......not a full bar. Beer/Wine only (and beer/wine specialty drinks) however.....my bloody mary was mighty tasty. We didn't order food but did enjoy sitting on the deck with our drinks. Nice waterside alternative to the Lake...More
