Sunday brunch was excellent. Love the view of the beach and lake from the patio

Drinks were not bad, but the Life’s a Beach cocktail tasted watered down and not worth the price of the experience of being on the beach. We also ordered the burrata and the “grilled ciabatta toast” that comes with it was soggy, barely toasted white bread that did not taste good on the actual burrata.
We also had several flys fall into our drinks. Not the restaurants fault but also a fair warning given the location of where you’re eating/drinking.
Service was very good, but the food and drinks are disappointing given what you are paying for

Great for brunch! The ambiance is upbeat and fun. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the water. We ordered the frozen cocktail flight which was both delicious and adorable. I also had the chilaquiles, they were huge. 2-3 people could have shared.

Great location on the beach! We had a fabulous waitress (whose name, sadly, escapes me!)...she was very attentive and quick to refill drinks! Very fun lunch spot!

Bad service, they were out of take out boxes so couldn’t even take home my left overs that I paid heavily for. Cute to try once, not worth revisiting

When we were seated the waitress was originally attentive, but then after she dropped off the beverages and we did not see her for 15min. We then asked for the manager and she was very attentive. I do believe that the drinks should have been comp'ed as we had to call for a manager in order to get service.

The drinks were tinier than expected and took a little bit of time to bring out. Not sure why but overall nice ambience, friendly staff, yummy food :-)

I had a party of 9. While we couldn’t all be at the same table due to COVID 19 guidelines, the staff was very accommodating and was sure to seat us next to each other. We were also able to bring a cake—which they stored in the kitchen for no extra fee, and I received a complimentary drink for my birthday!

I’m eager to return in the warmer months so I can enjoy the beach-y vibe in its entirety. Definitely recommend!

The lakefront location cannot be beat even on a chilly day. The menu sounds great but the sandwiches (chicken trio) were dry and lacked seasoning. The elote Cobb was great just way overpriced. Same with the cocktails—really great but overpriced for the size. The place is dirty— at first glance not, but the longer you look around you’ll find its not that clean which in these times make me concerned. And it’s loud— makes sense for the music to be pumping once the crowd gets going but 230 on an empty weekday afternoon would have been more pleasant if the volume was just lower. We also noticed the host was not observing covid precautions and seating tables directly next to one another when almost all tables were open. Yes most people want a lake view but almost every seat has one. We asked for a different table as we were being seated, and then asked to move again because tables were seated directly next to us. The defensive manager on site indicated that the health department told them they could seat every table but why take a risk when there’s so much space to work with? Totally not a high maintenance group but the logic just wasn’t there when the glass walls were up rendering it an indoor space.

So sad they don’t offer the breakfast menu during the week days. The Sangria taste like a juice out of a box and food is extremely expensive for what you get. Location is great.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and had such a special time! Our waitress Erica was wonderful and never rushed us - really let us take our time and enjoy the night. She had great recommendations, too. The burrata was outstanding. I had the Mykonos Plate and my husband had the Cobb salad. Huge servings for a great price, and you can’t beat the ambiance! Will definitely be back!

Pretty pricey but you are probably paying more for the view than the actual food and service. We ordered the fish tacos and brisket sliders--not the best. The tacos were extremely, extremely salty. And both dishes were cold. We also got a flight that was again, pricey, but good. I will say that the drinks were inconsistent (i.e., some drinks were stronger and some felt watered down).

Food was WAY overpriced. $25 for a salad. Service was way slow. $125 for two salads and two drinks at a place you have to use a port a potty is unacceptable. It was dark so we couldn’t see the lake. Probably better during the day.

Fun place next to the beach, definitely paying for the venue vs. what you’re actually getting. Food and drinks are good, but not worth the price that you pay. Still very nice aesthetics and good overall service.

Music very loud at luch time. The food arrived before the drinks. I am alergic to black pepper and everthing except the salmon had black pepper, and they could not prepare any other dish without it, which means that everything was prepared in advance (not fresh made). Incredible!!! It is not a place to have lunch or dinner.
