Spent a relaxing afternoon here enjoying a few ice cold adult beverages. We sat on the patio and enjoyed watching boats and jet skis come and go, plus, if you sit in the patio bar area, you can people and dog watch. Yep, dog watch. There was an amazing assortment of dogs and their people playing ball, swimming (just the dogs) and having fun.
Service was a bit slow, but they were very crowded and Jay, the bartender, was great and very friendly. We devoured a plate of BBQ nachos, and found them quite tasty.
Returned that evening and found it much less crowded and enjoyed a live band on the patio and saw a beautiful sunset over the lake. It’s a great place!

First let me say that we really like this location, great place to watch the sunset! But the kitchen needs help....went there on Wednesday evening around 7:30.
Lots of room at the bar, so Wife and I decided to sit there, get a bite to eat and then move over to the lake side to watch the sunset!
Well didn’t get to see it due to the poor delivery of the kitchen....I ordered a hamburger, medium rare, Wife ordered brisket sandwich...easy right...guess not....waited over 45 minutes for the food....brisket sandwich was ok, but my hamburger was burnt to a crisp, litterly!! Can’t understand how any cook/chef would allow a hamburger so over cooked to even go out to a customer....where’s the basic quality control...if they are serving something like that, hate to imagine what else is being overlooked!
The place wasent that busy...but I guess the kitchen just simply needs help and definitely some management.

We went there last night. We expected the wait for a table especially since it was 8pm on a Friday. There was a 30 min wait. The wait staff was friendly. We ordered food and waited for over an hour. Finally I spoke to the manager and she said she would try to get food out quickly and would take some $ off of our ticket. After another 20 min we got our food. It was good but not the wait. Again, staff was very friendly. Great atmosphere. Good food. Maybe there was a shortage of staff in kitchen.

Felt like we were back in the islands with drinks and food over looking the marina at sunset.
Will return soon.

Stopped in around 3 pm and sat down at the bar. Although there were several wait staff working the tables AND a person at the door we waited for over 10 minutes without seeing a bartender. Finally asked the door person if anyone was available, was told the bartender “ might” be on break. Never really seemed interested in getting us service
More minutes passed and a female finally showed up. Said she was not the bartender but did take my drink order. No non alcoholic drinks available
Choose to stay and ordered some ribs
Now this is a bbq place BUT we were told so sorry no ribs today.
Second visit here and will be the last. Very slow service the last time. Wanted to give them a chance
