Great place to unwind and enjoy not only the atmosphere and food but the servers are so personable. One in particular is Kelly. We always try to sit in her area and she is the sweetest most efficient server I have ever had. Even in the winter time this place is so entertaining from the boats that have decorated for... More

This place has great food. I love the steaks,ribs, and corn pudding. My husband and I usually order one of each and share each other's meals. Always plenty of food and good service.

I had a dress rehearsal dinner (70 people) in their banquet area. They exceeded my expectations. Tammy and David were so helpful in the planning process. The servers (Jennifer, Sorya,Kayla,Heather) we're phenomenal! They worked so hard. The food was top notch too! Highly recommend

What a great way to spend an evening! Dawn Marie was visiting us from Florida and our friends Charlie and Karen invited us to go out on their boat for a ride over to a local waterside restaurant for dinner. We cruised on down Tellico Lake through the channel connecting it with Fort Loudoun Lake and onto the Fort Loudon... More

Food great, fun atmosphere and great trivia with Knox Guys Trivia. On the marina in Lenoir City & Tellico Lake and Tellico Village. Terrific place to meet with friends any time, not just Trivia night.

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and always enjoyed a great meal in a beautiful spot. The baby back ribs are my favorite. The half rack will fill you up. Service is always fast and friendly. The relaxing view of the marina is great to enjoy with an extra drink.

Nice restaurant located on water across from marina. Tiki bar area outside must be great fun in the summer. We sat at table on the water, service was good, food average, but setting was everything. Returned next day for afternoon drinks on the deck.
