Have been through Cadillac hundreds of times and never stopped here before. Nestled on the lake the decor reminds me of a hunting lodge with all the red and green plaid and great views of the lake. Clam chowder was good and the French dip...More

I would have given it five stars, have there been some music and if it were a bit warmer inside. That being said, thank you so very much to the chef for preparing the walleye for me for lunch as it is only on the...More
