We come here after a round of golf at the nearby Cadillac Country Club. The staff is always friendly and the menu offers a variety of options....the dessert menu especially. After dinner, it's always fun to swing by the bar area for an after-dinner drink.

Busy and hopping every night! Good food and nice staff. Outdoor seating is lovely, dark inside. Lovely wine and beer selection and pork ribs were amazing!!! Plus high chairs and coloring for the kiddos. After dinner a stroll down by the water. Very nice

Epic fail on some simple menu items. Sandwich was served on a Luke warm bun and not the toasted baguette.....cheese was barely melted and not even mayo! Pickle juice drowned the bread to a soggy mess. Paid extra for onion rings substitution....got 4.....the batter was...More
