If you like fried seafood, this is the place. If you want to eat with a view of the water this is about the only place we know of, so we've been here several times. It's never been outstanding, but is consistently good. The place is huge! So even in high season, the wait is usually not too long!

The fish fry was very good, all you can eat. Ate at the bar on a Friday night. Got there at five, it was still Happy Hour. Happy Hour is the to six, OK $5 Bloody Mary. Bartender was attentive and personable. Interesting nautical decor, there is a lot to look at. Right across the street from the lake, prime... More

This is a fun, touristy place with average food. We used to like the ribs here but have noticed the food quality has declined over the years. We have a lake house, so we go here periodically and have noticed that it's not as good as it was a decade ago. Still, it's a fun atmosphere with a view of... More

We were looking forward a not-crowded, comfortable place for a few drinks in the afternoon. This medium size bar has a very friendly staff, and the restaurant is huge. A fun, casual place to eat and hang.

This place was interesting, staff was very good, food so-so and busy busy busy. It's almost as if they must be giving food away, which they were not, but it was hopping busy. Was worth 1 trip to experience but that's about it.

Fun atmosphere for families. Always busy and lively. Wait staff is good, could use busboys, though. Food? Would only recommend getting rotisserie/smoker items (chicken, brisket and ribs). They are fine. Rest of the food is NOT GOOD! For some reason they sprinkle slivered almonds on dishes that don't need it (creamy garlic dip, pasta with cheese sauce, etc....the almonds don't...

Large restaurant right on the lake. Decor a bit outdated. Food & service was good. Extensive food & drink menu. They smoke their meats in a detached smoke house on the premises.

We came here for the AYCE Friday (and Saturday) fish fry for the first time, and can't wait to go back. This is a very busy restaurant, but the service was pretty good, and the food came out piping hot. The Cod is served family style, either lightly battered or broiled. You get potato pancakes and applesauce or coleslaw, and... More

It's always busy. The food is what you would expect. Fatty and greasy. It's very high paced and always packed. Your can do better down the street at Oakfire.
