First thing you notice when you walk in is the smell, stall musky, wet carp mixed with vomit. Almost turned around. Had 5 pm reservation and still had to wait and there was no one there. The food was over price and average at best....More

The service here was just great. Our glasses were never even a few drinks empty. The onion rings are a must have appetizer. The meal was good. The atmosphere is very dark.

This classic restaurant is upscale dining at its best. They offer a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. I've never had a bad meal here. Their steaks are great but I highly recommend the trout and the mushrooms with chicken livers.

Lobster bisque is devine. Our server, Mike, was amazing. I love how this restaurant waits to submit different courses so all of your food does not arrive at once. Steaks were excellent and double chocolate fudge cake was delicious.

Took my wife there for a special occasion. Very expensive with poor quality food. Baked lobster was over cooked and tough. The batter fried lobster was tasteless.Good salad, good streak.

Best place at the lake for Prime Rib! We shared everything! A lettuce wedge salad, prime rib, add on mushrooms, baked potato and a bottle of Malbec red wine. Why not top off the evening with a great desert? We did, the Ice Cream Crunch!...More

My wife and I love coming here. The atmosphere is white table cloth and romantic. You don't have to wait long if you make reservations. The onion rings are amazing. The steak and seafood choices are very good. We've never had a bad meal here....More

You know how, when you're on vacation, and ask, "Where is a good place to eat?", this one, you can ask a local, AND or a vacationer. Went last night for Valentines, No overboard decorations, no pushing the 'red drinks' etc, Just well prepared food....More

Yes, this restaurant needs a face lift. But putting that aside the reason to come here is the prime rib. Everybody has their own way of doing prime rib. Some cut it and then dip it in au jus to cook it to the desired...More
