We ate lunch in the bar. Very Victorianish, dark oak, stained glass. Cool ambience. Great food (especially the cole slaw with my pulled pork sandwich.) The service was excellent. Hope we can return soon!

Very friendly, comfortable restaurant w/beautiful view of Lake Mitchell. In summer months, there is a dock so that you can arrive via boat. There are night,y specials and my favorite is the Fri fish.

I would have given this place a terrible rating, but it is in a great location and the service was very good. Unfortunately the food was awful. The soup of the day tasted like they had poured a pound of salt in it. We couldn't eat it and returned it for a salad. The walleye was the worst we have... More

One of our favorites, especially to take friends from out of town. The gliders on the patio with the lake views are outstanding. Food is always good, service great. Don't pass up the chowder!!!
