This is one of the odder restaurants where I've eaten. It's not easy to get there considering all of the roads are two lane and are hemmed in by a succession of lakes on both sides. Once there it presents a French Provincial building that looks more like a repurposed lake home that didn't work out. Inside, the floor plan... More

Mushroom appetizer! Nailed it! Being on the water, the steak is so good! So is the fish, not too fishy which is key yum!

Wonderful restaurant! Beautiful views of the lake! I ordered the Thai Crispy Walleye dish and it was AMAZING!!! It's spicy but worth the kick! I've been told it could also be ordered with chicken or salmon instead. And the price wasn't too bad for such a nice restaurant!!

Very Tuscan style interior design. Nice for adults night out. Good higher end food. The menu is not very exciting but consistent and good food.

Love this restaurant! Definitely a local favorite. Great food and atmosphere with view of the lake. I got the lunch salad with hazelnuts, cranberries, apples and added chicken. Perfect!

We celebrated our friend's Golden Wedding Anniversary at this establishment. This restaurant is situated on the beautiful setting of Union Lake and features a catering facility on the upper level, bar, gift and gourmet carry out areas. Our dinner and wine selection could not have been better. Our server was great and extremely knowledgable in advising us on wine selection,... More

Absolutely outstanding food. Love the veal and gnocchi and the Thai walleye. Wonderful salads. Also has A1 takeout for that cozy dinner at home. Magical lake view with twinkle lights; lovely open wall to the patio in summer.

Ordered the chicken margherita well done and when it came it was very chewy and warm, not hot as one would expect. I informed the waiteess and she took my plate back and returned it within minutes and nothing chnaged. Same peice of chicken, same temperature and all. Will not be going back. Was not impressed.

A nice little restaurant, small banquet center, gift shop, on the edge of Union Lake. Tuscan-like in its build, the ambience is absolutely wonderful. High ceilings, amber gold stucco, expansive patio overlooking the lake. Building is more spectacular than the food, which is typically ok but not memorable. Burgers consistently good, but this place could do so much more with... More
