We have eaten here since my kids were babies. Now 2 of them are married. We have lived at the lake for over 30 years. We eat here at least 2 times a month or more. Their food is awesome! This evening we called at 8:04 and asked how long they would be open. They replied 8:30. We told them... More

I love the food but the lower level, where the bar is located, always smells musty. You have to walk through the lower level to get to the restaurant and it always appears old and outdated. The service is fantastic and they serve traditional steaks and seafood. I would highly recommend, but the decor needs a face lift.

This restaurant was a little depressing as there was no outside light in the rooms we saw or were seated in. We sat by windows but were told we weren't allowed to open the blinds. No view except of the parking lot but would have been nice to have some daylight. Food was good as was the service.

It's our tradition to eat here every Christmas day. The steaks are amazing. So are the liver and mushrooms. Even if you don't think you like liver, try it because it will change your mind. They have great salads that come out with a little caddy full of toppings and salad dressing. The house dressing is the BEST!!!!! They are... More

Traveling with elderly parents and parked in the handicap area. Walked to the door and it was locked. We were a bit confused, but within moments an employee stepped outside and advised that portion of the restaurant wasn't "quite ready" yet but invited us to take a seat on the bench and she would come get us shortly. We asked... More

Our dinner at J Bruners was excellent. After varying reviews we weren't sure what to expect. But you can't always go just by reviews. Our reservation was kept on time on a Friday night. Amy our server was prompt, courteous and brought our appetizer and main courses in a timely manner. My red trout with almonds was very good. The... More

We went to this restaurant after 8:00 p.m. with a group of 20.They had no problem handling our large on short notice. The wait staff was excellent and all the food prepared was great. I had the salmon. The onion rings and mushrooms are great appetizers.
