"Great food and service. Portion sizes were huge. Great atmosphere." - Brandon Stone
"Great food! Great environment! Staff was helpful and friendly. We dined with our family, including small children, and we were not disappointed. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large for the price. Inside there are plenty of seating options, while outside offered live music and even a pool bar! Stop in and check it out if you're in the area. You will not be disappointed!" - Bambi Roberts
"We had a great waiter (blue eyes!) helped us choose drinks, the food was tasty. I had the Chicken Quesadilla, loved the black olives in there, arrived crisp and hot. Took our temp to enter pool deck which was fine, pool is chest deep on me 5'4" and cool/refreshing. Kids can swim with you until 4 on weekdays (not Friday). We enjoyed it." - Debbie Sciarrino
"A must visit! Beautiful lakeside bar and grill offering amazing sushi and grouper fingers! Also offering delicious frozen drinks. You can swim in the beautiful pool while you wait. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The place is clean and well kept. Easy by road or water." - Sherrie Soum

"Amazing! Service with Kylie was wonderful! Food was spot on! Would stop here again! The Cajun pasta was spicy and a full plate! Salad was ok but everything else we tried was perfect! I recommend stopping here!"

"This is our favorite place to go! Wonderful staff, variety of food from a large bar menu from wings, salads, sandwiches, entrees, kids selections, sushi area, huge resort style pool, lots of parking for cars and boats! Indoor and outdoor seating everywhere! Even during the current pandemic they have taken extra precautions to protect their customers from checking temps, offering hand sanitizer bottles, etc. We will continue to support our favorite business at the lake! They are also a dog friendly bar!"

"Went here my friends birthday weekend and had the best time! My food was great and I'm so happy to see that they have sushi (my fav) on the menu! Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of my food or drinks because I was too busy enjoying it and didn't think to snap pictures beforehand.
The atmosphere was great, I enjoyed the live music, and all employees were nice and seemed more than happy to be working.
*If you come here the stuffed mushrooms, crab rangoon, and jalapeño poppers are to die for!! Drink wise, I love their Rum Runners!"
