I really had high hopes for this place as the parking lot was full of local cars on both evenings we were at the adjacent resort. Turns out the first night was a concert at the nearby fair grounds, and the next night was trivia night and the place was packed with trivia players. We sat in the non-trivia area... More

Visited with my family. Hoping for a nice relaxing lunch. They weren't packed at all. The waitor was John. I had been once before about 2 yrs ago & it was a nice place to eat good burgers and sit on the deck by the water. The other staff walking around looked miserable and unhappy. We waited 40 min for...

Just average food and slow service. No atmosphere unless you can sit out back but not in winter. I had a chicken Caesar salad.

Our group has regularly attended this restaurant's Trivia Night. This week after waiting for 45 minutes and not even receiving a menu, a drink order, or any service at all, we just left. Clearly, there is a lack of interested management here.

We arrived at 5:45 p.m. before going to a concert at 7:00 . We were immediately seated but did not see a waitress for 15-20 minutes. Drink order was placed as soon as she came to our table. When the drinks were served we placed our food orders. She came back after 30 minutes & said it would be another... More

When the wait staff complains like children and the owner has to come out and reprimand his customers for moving two tables together, we have a problem. The customer always comes first, and that is not an unreasonable request when we want our group to sit together. Instead of training the wait staff to smile and serve across a table... More

I moved to this area about 9 months ago and have been trying the local cuisine. We have our boat at this marina which is a great excuse for us to eat here. Everyone always enjoys their meals whether it is a burger, wings and the staff is attentive. View is awesome and is a favorite for us to bring... More
