We were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and we were glad we tried here. Cheese fondue comes with each meal - and it was delicious. Each meal comes with potato, vegetables and salad/soup. Lots of food for the price.

We tried the twice baked potato and it seemed to have stayed in the oven a little too long and we ordered a rib eye which seemed riddled with gristle. We normally order a filet at steak places, so it might have just been us.

Wait staff is very professional and wine list is extensive. Value was good with all the food that was included in the price.

We visited on a Saturday night, it was busy but not packed. We stood by the hostess stand for between 5-10 minutes. While waiters buzzed around and past us, not one greeted us or said ‘we will be with you shortly’...nada, nothing. No one came out from the back to seat or greet us. Since the place had one of those ‘smells’ of an unclean Restaurant, we walked out. Went to Jimmy’s and had a nice meal and listened to live music.

It’s a shame as we’d heard LewMarnels was good, now we will never know.

Such a well kept secret of high caliber lake dining...Maybe that's a good thing! Once again a fabulous New York steak, their hallmark cheese fondue and excellent salad.
I LOVE this place for it's small, unique and tranquil setting with Frank Sinatra classics in the background and bronze western art...Not to mention, the fabulous staff...Octavio and Antonio come to mind...I wouldn't consider visiting SLT without an evening here...Just would not.

This restaurant has lived well passed its reputation - the steak as flavorless and sub prime grade - service mediocre - basically not great at all.

It was not a busy evening. The waiter was aloof and unhelpful. I told them upfront that I had some food allergies. From the specials menu I was offered salmon....poached or grilled. I chose plain poached salmon but when it arrived it was swimming in a yellow and green sauce....possibly some sort of hollandaise? I sent it back and was brought a plain poached salmon, but the jacket potato with it was cold. No apologies were offered. Our friend had to ask three times for the glass of wine he had ordered. We ordered two desserts and asked for four spoons but were told that wasn't possible! We have eaten here before but we all agreed that we will not return as the standards have dropped so much and the service was poor. I cannot recommend it.
