They’ve got a really good range of gins here, I tried a local one. There is a limited cocktail list. I had a straight gin and tonic and it was fine. The view is lovely, over the lake.

I was dying for a cheese plate and some wine and we found this location. It is up some stairs above the other restaurants in the area and is easy to miss. They have a deck with some great views. The location is very much...More
