Walked down from the Golden Arrow to work up an appetite. Weather was perfect, sat out on the deck. Sandwiches were perfect as always. Service it top notch. But the best part is the Bloody Mary, smooth with a little bite of horseradish!

The 'Cottage' is at lake side. Super lunch sandwiches. Always get a nice salad with the meal. My wife and i believe lunch is a GREAT value. Good bar and the nachos are fantastic.

A little off the beaten track, more locals than tourists which is a plus. Great little lakeside terrace shielded from the wind for cool days. We either drop in for lunch after golf, sit on the terrace with a beer and sandwich or drop in...More
