    Loved the food, service was fantastic and will definitely come back! The only thing was that we were sitting on the patio which was lovely but the restaurant had their own music blaring through the speakers which was fine but then the live music on the stage RIGHT next door started playing so you essentially have two completely different songs blaring in your ears the whole time if you’re sitting on the patio and there’s live music next door. Not fun. I’d suggest the restaurant turn off the patio speakers when there is (LOUD!!!) live music playing just 30 feet away…

    The real MVP was our server Tyler, he provided great service and attitude. A lot of the staff would also check in from time to time to make sure everyone was well taken care of. That said, the food, even the basics, like bread, fries, and mac and cheese were really good and the seafood tasted fresh, fresh, fresh. Lastly, we sat of the deck over the lake which really added to our good vacation vibes - and I assume that would be the case if you were even a local.
