I recently had a piece of coconut pie from the lake restaurant. It was one of the most delicious pies that I have tasted in a long time. I will definitely try another desert the next time I am there.

Stopped in for lunch at this restaurant on the lake. Wasn't impressed with the hamburger steak so definitely don't order that.

Wanted to try something different and we should have looked at the reviews before coming here. Got here at 1:25pm, never been here before and the person at the counter asked if we wanted the buffet or a menu. We looked at the dry erase...More

Went for lunch with two coworkers, because they said the buffet was very good. It was less than satisfactory. Fried chicken was dry, as were the ribs. Selection of vegetables was good, but not all were flavorful. Nice staff, great lake view, but probably won't...More

My sister wanted a mom & pop style restaurant for lunch, so we stopped here on our way home from Augusta to Savannah. There were only a handful of customers there. The wait staff kept look out for us. If we needed a new drink,...More
