Five-page menu of bottled beers. Came primarily for the cheese curds, though in the end the were just average. Busy place but we got right in with a party of six on a Friday night.

Nice bar on a small man made lake. Great beer selection and generous portions of good bar food. Usually crowded at lunch and after work times.

Just ate here today. Great atmosphere and the food was good. I did use the salt and pepper shakers quite a bit. They need to season more. Our waiter was great. I would go again.
