Great Location! Good burgers and the breakfast portions were big and tasty. Walk to the lake after- some seating has a view of the lake. Fast friendly service.

Buffalo burger was 8oz, so we asked to share. We also had sweet potato fries with it! The restaurant was unique because it had been recovered from the lake and put back together. You could eat outside or in!
