Our evening was perfect except for our server Yves. He wasn’t very personable or attentive to us and forgot my wine :( It was hard to watch the other server interacting so much with his tables. Otherwise, a fabulous night out.

We celebrated our anniversary at the lake house. The food was good, but very pricey. I had the salmon for $40.00 which was way over priced for what you get.

Would’ve Given 5 Stars but...

The food and atmosphere are wonderful, but charging $1.00/table for tap water and having to ask for bread rather than it being offered, just seems rather petty for a high end establishment. Of course we will continue to frequent this restaurant (happy to support our local businesses) with hope that they will present a more generous, sophisticated approach going forward.

We appreciate your feedback! The $1.00 we charge is for our unlimited premium filtered water. If you would prefer tap water, please let us know next time and we would be happy to remove that charge for you.

Our server Darcy was the best server I have ever had. We went with his recommendation for the rib eye and scallops, paired with a wine he also recommended and it was so soo so delicious. The restaurant is super warm, cozy and you feel like you’re in a really nice fancy cabin. The atmosphere was perfect and even though there were other tables full of people we were able to have great conversation without it being noisy.

We went for our anniversary and they really took care of us! Bubbles upon arriving, a little “happy anniversary” chocolate plaque with our dessert... so awesome. Thanks Lake house, can’t wait to return after restrictions! The charcuterie is bomb

Food is still always the best, I've order a scallops, its the best and so tender... worth the price, though they missed my special request to put happy birthday sign on the dessert, over all they made it at the very end. Salute to all yhe chefs.

We live close to the restaurant but had never been there for dinner. The menu for dinner seemed a bit odd as in I didn't recognize a lot of the sides but regardless of what they were it all tasted delicious. Highly recommend!

This is the first time that a restaurant has acknowledged if you are celebrating something. I’ve put down celebrating before at other restaurants but they’ve never done anything. The server was amazing and we will definitely be back.

To be honest, the food, other than the oysters, wasn’t worth the price. We went here for our anniversary and the waiter was phenomenal! Spoiled us with a glass of Prosecco, which was so nice. The restaurant inside is beautiful. Be sure to check it out before dark so you can see the view of the lake.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary here and was the perfect place. We sat by the window and a view of the the frozen lake and was especially nice because we had the place all to ourselves for an hour before another customer came in. The service was amazing and the food from appetizers to desserts were fantastic. We would definitely come back.
