"One of us ordered form the specials menu Salmon and risotto."

I'm not sure what the last reviewer was complaining about, because this place is WONDERFUL. Perfect atmosphere for decent food and a relaxing time! Complete with friendly ducks walking through the patio! I was leary coming because of the review, but I'm so glad I came. The staff was incredibly friendly, though clearly busy so wait was a bit long. No strange smells, the patio is over a lake so if you don't fancy lakeside smells I recommend eating inside. The fried guacamole was AMAZING! Followed it up with the parmesean crusted chicken and it was perfect for a light dinner. Currently waiting for our Michigan bread pudding dessert to arrive, but I'm confident that it will also be delightful! We will certainly come again and recommend!

Rebecca, so glad to hear that you had a wonderful experience and that you really enjoyed all your food. Next time, try our Tomato Bruschetta or our Blackened Mahi Tacos, they too are delicious! Thanks for stopping in and giving us a great review. See you again soon!

The fish and chips were very heavy in breading with not a lot of flavor, while the Cole slaw had no flavor at was labor day weekend but even tho the service was slow even for the check while the resturant was empty at 10 at night

Great spot. Friendly staff and most have been there a long time which is a testament to the manager, Bill. Good pours and consistent food quality. Been going since it was owned By Bub Rose himself and I think he'd be proud.

Thanks for the review. Not only do we have staff that has been here for 20 years, but we have second generations working here too. Bill has his son and daughter working here now too. It truly is a family business.

I'd like to say every trip there was a pleasant one, but my most recent dining experience was a disappointment. Our waitress never told us her name or what the specials were. Instead she asked what she could get us in a very impersonal fashion. Once we had our food she never came to check on us until she came to see if we were ready for our bill. we were hoping to stay for another glass of wine and maybe desert, but since she never asked/offered we paid and left. Seems like she wanted our table back more than our business. I understand it was friday night and busy but we did not expect to feel so rushed. It was really a let down considering I've had many other pleasant experiences there in the past.

We arrived here on a Thursday early evening around 4 pm. We came here for the 1st time with out of town visitors because my daughter was told it was great. The hostess was beyond rude to us when she seated us so fast we did not have a chance to ask to be seated in an outside seating spot as the covered patio space smelled badly. There was a waitress next to us and we asked her if we could move and she said no problem sit anywhere. The hostess did not just say a few scolding words but badgered us about it. We should have gotten up and left. We watched as she did this at least 3 other times to Customers. Our waitress was the only real pleasant part of it. It was her last day there and she was looking forward to her next adventure in life. The food arrived before we had much time to eat our starter, which was very good. One of us ordered form the specials menu Salmon and risotto. It was not risotto and the fish was so over cooked. The whole dish was very bland to taste. We hardly touched it. The other Salmon dish that was off the main menu was also over cooked but compared to the specials menu salmon was good. The mac and cheese was good as well but as a whole none was worth the money. So if your truly a lover of great food and great service this is not the place. If you looking for plane food and staff that has no clue about customer service but do not mind high prices and a good view then this is just the place for you. For the 3 of us it was a really bad way to start off a visit and came at far to high of a price.

My wife and I went here for our Second Anniversary. She loved the Moscatto. I got a blended red which was delicious. Server was helpful with suggestions. I ordered the Mac and Cheese (very good but I'd go different next time) and my wife ordered the Parmesian Crusted Chicken Breast. Apple Crisp for desert. Ratings 1-5 Food: 4.5 Service: 4 Atmosphere: 4 Pricing: Wine/Beer from $5-8. Entrees from $10-20. Deserts $5-7.

Thank you for stopping in and congratulations on your 2nd anniversary. We do have some great drinks in the bar, lots of micro brews and a big wine list to please anyone. Next time you stop in, you should try our Walleye. It is another great menu item or our Mahi Tacos are a great choice too. Hope to see you again soon!

I wouldn't say the food is the best I've had, but I've only had the opportunity to try the Ahi sandwich and the turkey burger. They're both quite sizable portions, juicy, and filing, but I find the turkey burger to be a little on the sweet side due to the copious amounts of sun-dried tomatoes. The homemade chips are a good contrast but some of them actually had a sweet flavor, which I rather enjoyed. I ended up wanting dried apple chips to compliment the burger and pasta salad. That said, the service was excellent and the view on the dock was gorgeous. Would definitely recommend coming here on a warm night out. A little warning, however, as price wise it doesn't qualify as a single-dollar categorization. The turkey burger was nearly 15, ahi sandwich was 11, martini was about 9 and Mac and cheese was 16 (to its credit, packed a complex recipe description). I will definitely come here again to try some of the other dishes. Lovely place and atmosphere.
