Food is excellent and views are great. Local flavors are featured. It is near the marina and the lake is beautiful. Easily assessable by boat or car

We went for the lunch buffet during the week. They had several meat entrees along with a carving station. The fried okra and the corn were absolutely delicious! Pretty crowded but no wait to be seated. Beautiful deck overlooking the lake.
