The place pulled us in with the exciting decor but we were very unhappy with the quality of the food and the price we paid for all of it. Will not be visiting again.

The outside seating was wonderful. Our food was outstanding, I had the special Beef Wellington and my husband had the ribeye. We brought our own bottle wine for a very reasonable cork fee. Our waiter Gerald was great. Highly recommend for a special dinner night.

If you're looking for ambiance, outdoor by a fire table or indoor seating of an old English Inn, this stop is a must! The cocktails, food, atmosphere are spectacular. The beef wellington was as good as I've ever had.

We made a reservation but it actually wasn't necessary. You can probably just walk in. But you can easily call and ask if reservations are necessary. Some places you can't get into without one; this isn't one of them.

It's an all-you-can-eat special featuring whitefish, bluegill, walleye, catfish and a couple of others. You can mix and match. It's very good. Comes with potato and coleslaw.

We had reservations on a weeknight, but it wasn't needed. I would reserve to make sure you have a place plus to request a window or fireplace table.
