It's always a nice visit and they've all been business dinners. A nice room overlooking the marina, food is good and staff does a very nice job. Vegetarian and vegan options.

We had a good time. And the restaurant was able to accommodate our large party of 14. The chicken marsala was excellent. Request a table on the patio for views high above Cumberland lake.

Fabulous view and great seafood! Try the grouper and crab cakes. This is a great place to wind down after a long work day. Service was great and chefs aim to please.

Not sure where to start. When this place has got its act together it can't be beat. Had better grouper here than fresh grouper in Florida. But dang it can be bad too. Had shoe leather steak here more than once, don't order it anymore....More

I can't answer that. I've never seen a dog in the restaurant. I would recommend that you call the restaurant and ask them directly.

We were looking for a nice restaurant to have dinner after attending a family reunion near Somerset,KY last weekend. I found this one online and thought it would be nice to dine at a waterfront restaurant on Cumberland Lake. If you go, don't call and ask for directions. After about 5 calls we finally found it. It is located at a marina and you have a view of some water and lots of houseboats. The hostesses and waitress was very friendly but the decor left much to be desired and the windows were really dirty looking. The chili cheese fries were ok and my husband and I ordered the sirloin since they did not have New York Strip. The steak actually tasted like liver!!!! We went ahead and ate it, probably shouldn't have. Somerset doesn't have a lot to offer as far as restaurants but you are probably better off staying with the fast food restaurants or Ruby Tuesday, etc. We will not be back.
