A very pleasant place to sit on the lake and enjoy a cocktail. This is the only restaurant on Hayden Lake. The food is good but I would not call it fine dinning. Mostly flatbread pizzas hamburgers and salads.

Great location but they clearly have some sort of problem. After 30 minutes of not being served and some confusion over who was our server we left. Observing others having the same issue. Inexperienced help or simple mismanagement? Do not know but we shall not return. A real shame given its location.

A great little neighborhood bar and grill. Eat outside on the deck over the lake. The neighborhood here is Hayden Lake a many of the diners arrive by boat. Menu is ordinary pub food, burgers, fish and chips and great, huge salads. Good selection of beers on tap.

Relatively new management has made this place even better. They really try hard to please the customer and the food is consistently good. It is wonderful sitting outside on the deck overlooking Hayden Lake. If you in the area, it's worth the stop!

Outside seating, on the water, Irish Death beer - what more do you want? Oh. Maybe more of a view of the water - move all the boats out of the way?

Perfectly rounded menu for a fun and delicious lunch on the water. Parking up front for boats, a great menu selection, and the location is great. Fried calamari and the fish tacos were so good, as was the huckleberry lemon drop. Great day on the water ended with a great lunch! Just wish we had a chance to go back... More

This restaurant used to have a dinner menu with great food. Now that it is under new management, it's just another bar food place. Too bad; it is a nice venue.
