Sorry to say, the Friday night pizza and a pitcher was awful.. Well, the beer was good. Crust like cardboard (couldn't eat it) and I love the crust. Skimpy toppings, no sauce, not sure what is was but it was not pizza, Really? Our Third...More

Tasty pizza. Fantastic server. Close to lake and river. Place feels like stepping back in time, like a place grandparents went to for a fancy dinner when they were young.

It's been awhile since we've been here for a meal. We ordered the hanger steak and whitefish. The food was very good. Everything was a la carte like bread and salads. Expensive meal but good. Not sure we'll be back as it was a bit...More
