Had a great lunch with my family. Food was fantastic. And owner went way out of the way to look after my 7 year old. View was amazing. Would highly recommend we will be back.

Having our dinner right on the canal as boats go by was a nice difference. We all had the Pickeral, very good along with mashed and cob of corn. Disappointment was no french frys on dinner menu.

Nice place! You stay between land and water enjoying sunshine and water activity, different type of boats going both ways. Food is good, I took crab cakes (that were though not as good as in Washington DC or Boston) and chicken pasta that was gorgeous!

I've also eaten there many times and never had a problem with the temperature of my food or any streaks on the glassware. Perhaps the glass your wine was served in was a fluke and was missed in the polishing?

As most people have outlined...service dogs are permitted, but pets should remain out of the dining area. It is a casual atmosphere, but still is a Canadian retaurant.
