Rude staff- especially the bartender- and food is mediocre at best. I will NEVER go back. It's a shame because it's very close to our condo but I will drive an hour before I ever visit this place again.

We just had dinner with friends at Ruthie D's. The food was excellent and our server Allison did a great job of serving. She even knew which side to place and remove plates from. Great food, great view and reasonable prices for the resort area.

From the tremendously pleasant receptionist who took our reservation phone call, top-tier table service, to the fantastic lake view, Ruthie D's restaurant rates my highest accolades. With our sparkling wine, we enjoyed the crab cakes and grilled shrimp to start our supper, followed by the...More
