Great place to meet friends or family for a meal. Deck is beautiful overlooking the lake! Ideal at happy hour - watching the sunset. Staff are friendly and food is good!

Very nice place to go food good, good range of beers to choose from but I must say the beers are very expensive $7.30 for a 3.5 drink.

Lovely views from the deck. Staff attentive and food very good. The only downside - it can be quite noisy. Comfortable dining. Great menu and quick service add to make this venue a great experience.

Had a really nice meal and the service was excellent. Thoroughly recommend. Kids eat free on Sundays so worked out really cheap for us. Will be back for sure.

Busy Saturday night. Waited just over an hour for pork belly. There was one small peace of pork belly accompanied by thick slices of rubbery pork but definitely not belly; some mashed potato and 1/4 pear..very disapointing for the price and wait.
