Good price and atmosphere for a local establishment. We had the loaded tater tots, a cod dinner, chicken Alfredo, and a kids chicken tender meal. Everything was delicious!

You cannot beat the location of this restaurant it is right on the water and has lots of outdoor seating. During the winter they keep good hours even though it's a slow time for the area. The wait staff is great and the beer is cold.

This is the place we go to almost every Friday when we get to Houghton Lake where we have a place. Very kid friendly for the grandkids, large menu and one of the few places still on the lake. Outside deck in the summer.

Food sucked, drinks were small and waitresses weren't friendly. The food was very bland and way overpriced for what you got.

Great food and bar! Grill to your own liking! Impressive in-house wood grill in the middle of the restaurant. Spectacular views of Houghton Lake, pool and arcade games and more.

Strikes me as more of a Saturday Night Party Bar that happens to serve good food too. I had an excellent steak and my wife had the mahi fish tacos. My steak was grilled exactly as I ordered it, the mahi tacos were a little messy and too juicy.
