I know this place has more potential than what our experience was. We were set outside, which on any other occasion would have been perfect but it was a chilly night. Our server wasn't great. We were never asked for refills. The food however, was delicious! I will try it again.

The restaurant is very nice with beautiful views. The staff was great and courteous; continued to check on us. The fried fish was as good as I've had anywhere and you could carry on a conversation without yelling. Everything was clean. The prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return. Recommend everyone give it a try.

One of the nicer fish restaurants in town. Expensive but nicely prepared dishes with a great view of the lake. You can boat in a tie-off of course. Very good service. Al fresco dining is an option as well. Nice for Hot Springs to have a place like this.

Great staffing, the herbed crusted Tilapia was perfect. Shrimp poppers starters delicious, hushpuppies not my favorite, but the red boiled potatoes with lots of butter and coconut shrimp were YUM!

I ordered the crab-stuffed shrimp at $19.95. The shrimp were overcooked and the crab filling tasted like something from a can. The sides on the other hand were excellent. I had the red potatoes, which were the best I've tasted. I sampled the mashed potatoes of another person in my party and found them to be very good as well.... More

Stick with appetizers, drink and view. Fish on seafood platter just soft and bland, fried okra tasteless. Boiled red potatoes are good.

We ate here twice during our visit to Hot Springs and it was pretty good. My husband liked it more than myself, although again, it was pretty good.

The nice feature here is that it is on the lake, come by boat if you like. Food is consistent, mostly fried fish and seafood offerings. Waitstaff friendly. Very comfortable inside or outside dining on the water. I've given the review a three, but probably deserved 3 1/2. Great place for a drink or dinner as the sun sets on... More

This place is usually very busy, but worth the wait. It's not an upscale restaurant and the casual atmosphere might put some off, but if you are just wanting a good place to eat some good food, this is for you. We waited about 40 minutes in the bar for a table. The bar is a bit small and crowded,... More

Nice location on the lake. One can dine inside or outside. Nice view of those taking advantage of boating or skiing on the water. Nice friendly atmosphere. The food is good too.
