Service and view were great but food was sub par. Don’t think it is worth the price.

Troy was our waiter and he made the experience. He and all the food and wine were absolutely fabulous!

We had a delayed Valentines dinner at Bin on the Lake. the wine list is impressive and my old fashioned cocktail was quite good. The ambiance is simple but classy, with most tables getting a nice view of the lake. The food was tasty and yet, somewhat health. We both enjoyed our selections. The service was exactly what we like, with our server being friendly but not obtrusive. I have a hearing problem and appreciated the quiet atmosphere.I recommend this restaurant and will return.

Really disappointing :( First, we had to wait almost 10 minutes as there was no one at the host stand and not until a server came over did we get any attention or seated.
I will say, view is very nice.
The food was a big let down. We ordered cheese and 2 were ok, on was limp and looked like it had been sitting out all day. Butter lettuce salad was good but nothing special, still was the best thing we ate. I ordered cod. It came with a succotash that looked like British breakfast beans and tasted similar - very one note and like tomato paste. Cod was ok but had no seasoning. Husband had the chicken that was stuffed with brown mush (i think it was supposed to be sauage?) and tasted like a wet paper bag. For $150 I would have expected much more. Will not be back.

The occasion was our celebration of Valentine's Day. I was served a nice Porter. My wife chose a wine to begin. We split a butter lettuce with figs salad; very nicely and amply dressed I ordered the Seafood Risotto which was very good, the scampi was well flavored and the risotto was perfectly cooked. My wife had the Scallops. She had a side of fingerling potatos and baby carrots which were nicely flavord but slightly underdone. Compliments and concerns were sent to the chef. Our dinner was purchased wirh a GROUPON. Unfortunately the voucher was printed with no voucher code due to inadvertent redeeming before printing the voucher. The Server and management was very accomodating and honored the purchase receipt. I'm very unhappy with GROUPON because the purchaser has no way of rcovering the Voucher Code at this time, and no way of contacting them on a person to person phone call. The Service Provider should be the only party able to indicate a redemption of the purchase.

Very pleased to have found the perfect setting to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Food, wines, service & ambiance was unforgettable. Bin on the Lake is now on our short list for any event we want to be special!

Service was very slow despite the restaurant not appearing to be particularly busy. Steaks were fine, nothing compared to a proper steak restaurant and mine was more of a medium-well rather than the medium-rare I’d ordered. No bread basket or anything. A forgettable experience which was disappointing given that it was a special occasion.
