The service was actually very good, but the food was just okay, nothing special.

Experience was very good and the food was also very good. Our server was top notch. We sat in the first floor dining area. Couple of recommendations: soften some of the surfaces to bring the noise level down a few decibels. There is an area where the dishes are deposited that has no door or ceiling and from time to time there would be loud dish crashing noises from the dishes being deposited. Highly recommend a ceiling for that room. Other than that there was great food, great atmosphere and great service. Our family will be going back.

All four meals were outstanding.
We will definitely be back.
Loved the guitars 🎸 all around on the walls.
The outdoor patio was great. Look forward to going back there on an evening.

This was our first visit here and we didn’t know what to expect (other than the cars). Wow! It was great! The atmosphere was really fun! Downstairs there are TVs everywhere with car shows (of course) and sports. Upstairs is the bar and outdoor porch look out over the water where you can access the restaurant by boat or car! When we went, there was live music on the porch too! Oh yeah and the food was amazing too! I had a really good Italian beef sandwich and my husband had the ribs. Loved it all!

Great place to dine in Fox Lake! Our food was delicious and at the perfect temperature. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and received excellent service. We’ll be back!

We asked our lovely waitress what her recommendations were. The 5 of us who went with her recommendation were very happy - burger, patty melt (called the Ex-Wife), chicken sandwich and ribs. Our 6th person ordered a steak which he found to be sub-par but unfortunately, he didn't say anything until we left. I did call the restaurant the next day to alert them regarding the steak. All in all, nice place with a nice view, music upstairs - good addition to Fox Lake.

SO this was our first time and we loved it!! Going back to spend time by a fire pit to just kick back eat drink relax and enjoy the live music and company. Heather was our waitress. She is superior!! Stinky was efficient, kind, attentive, courteous and downright honest and funny. We bought T-shirts, dinner, drinks and have just raved to everyone how much we like it!!! So glad you're there and look fwd. to visiting again!!

Food was very slow coming out for a weekday after 7pm and no crowd. Our waitress was fantastic tho. Very attentive and apologetic for food taking so long. Not her fault.

Food was good and server was in training. Would have liked more check ins from server for drinks, etc. Did get one of our orders wrong, but immediately caught it and offered a new order or discount. Overall it was great. Love the atmosphere!
