If I could give this a 3.5 rating, I would. This was our 3rd or 4th time here in the last few years (we don't get into this area, it's a vacation destination for us) and we've never had a bad meal. This last time, I was slightly disappointed when I tried a new dish, their "Mama's Veal Parmigiana", which... More

Not your average supper club! This one has the best Italian food with an awesome view! Just make sure you get there early or make reservation. For sure worth the wait and drive.

I am not sure what people see in this place. The food is just very average, if not slightly below. We have eaten here a couple of times. The lasagna is ok...not a lot of cheese and sauce and a lot of noodles. The pizza is awful...some kind of cornmeal crust and it has always been burnt when we pick... More

Mama's has the best iltalian food in the area! They have beautiful views of the lake. There is a full bar too.

I have been going to mamas since I was little. The food never seems to disappoint. The food is always amazing and so is the service! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a sense of taste.

We had dinner here as a group of four. The Bartender was funny (think of George Carlin). We ordered zucchini apps which were pretty good. We also ordered a large pizza and a large salad both which were good. The only negative - they ran out of bread sticks? How does a pizza restaurant run out of bread sticks?

First time we went there, I was a little kid and Mama greated us as we came in. The food was great then and still is. There are three people there connected to Mama so I was glad to see some of the family continues to make sure the quality of the food is high. Large portions and everyone just... More

Visited Mama's tonight and the four of us had pizza. The pizza was bland and lacked any taste. The taste of the dough and flour was the strongest. Also disapointing was the fact the restaurant was out of bread sticks. Otherwise, our time at the bar was enjoyable. Our view of the lake was relaxing. Waitress was wonderful, salad good.... More

This was our first visit to Mama's. The food was great and our server Cheryl was excellent. I had shrimp scampe and my husband had the Scillian steak which was so tender and cooked perfectly. Desserts were wonderful. We will certainly return to Mama's and recommend it to friends. After our meal several servers came to our table and sang... More

We always stop in here while on vacation. The food, drinks and service are pretty good. We had veal parmigiano, shrimp scampi and the breaded shrimp for meals. Which were all very good. The shrimp are huge! We had calamari and the hot breadsticks as an appetizer...I would not recommend the calamari it was a processed stick. The only complaint... More
