    Really? Whipped cream wasn’t standard with pumpkin pie? Thankfully, requested and delivered to our table but we really shouldn’t have had to ask. We were not the only requesters. Otherwise dinner was fine but not necessarily worth the $45.00. Not the best value for a family with two young kids. No alternative menu options apparently for such a family (as observed at an adjacent table). See you next Thanksgiving!

    Great view of the lake. Nice ambience and pleasant waitstaff. Here's what we ordered: brussel sprouts -- good Thai curry mussels -- salty Tuna poke bowl -- OK, but they should really cut some of the items smaller. big chunks of mango and large slices of cucumber don't make for a good poke bowl. Kung Pao Bowl -- OK, not spicy though lobster and tiger prawn linguini -- very nice. but the lobster tail is small (warm water variety, they said? smaller tails?) Overall nice though, and I'd give it another try.

    While our service and food were great as always, we were seated in the lounge next to a large Wedding party, with many small children, which took away from our own wedding anniversary celebration. I would have thought making a reservation weeks in advance, we would have been seated in the main dining room? We will be back despite this particular evening's experience.

    Good food, decent service, (waiters were really nice, just a bit slow the night we went) but value for money isn't great. Two salads, two hunter chickens and two drinks with 20% tip = $186! That's crazy! You definitely get taken advantage of because of the location. Know before you go!

    The food we were served was substandard. My partner ordered beef short ribs and they were tough, dry, and tasteless. For the first time in his life he had to send the dish back because he could not eat it. The server was very good and tried to be as accommodating as possible, providing him with a second dish which he could eat. But because his original meal was so bad, the dinner experience was not good. The roasted asparagus, which was a substitute for roasted Brussels sprouts, had tough ends and were, as a result marginal. The substitute meal was ordinary. Given the high ratings for this restaurant and the lovely setting, we expected better.

    In this charming small town, an unexpected culinary treasure awaited. The food's delightful flavors were masterfully presented, enhanced by a lakeside view. The exceptional service, especially from our waiter Brad, added an entertaining touch. An evening that seamlessly blended taste, ambiance, and service, leaving enduring memories.

    Was extremely busy with tour bus customers. Our waitress was as good as she could be for being ran off of her feet. We waited a long time for drinks and to order. For being busy , our drinks stayed empty for 15-20 minutes. Food was great, just too bad our overall experience will not lead us back.

    Food was good, but took over an hour to get from the time we ordered. The waiter was trying, but the service was not great (had to remind/ask multiple times for some things). This was not our first visit to this restaurant, so we knew you need to be patient to get your food. The atmosphere on the patio is nice, but overall, this restaurant is just ok for the price.

    We went as a group of 4 for my husband’s birthday. It was lovely! The service was great!! Good crab cakes and calamari. Then we decided on the tomahawk dinner for the table and everything was delicious (the meat a little overcooked but we didn’t say anything because we were still enjoying it). Thanks for the perfect evening

    Really disappointed in the food. As a place that features steaks, my New York strip was $52. It was by no means a premium steak (which I would expect at that price point), but rather an overly salted, thin cut with gristle. The fries accompanied with the steak were extremely salty too. That all said, my wife enjoyed her seafood linguine and the service was good. Maybe give the steak a pass.

    We were able to get seated on the patio which had a great view of the lake/beach. Our server was very knowledgeable when it came it to the menu, to boot he had a great personality. Food was delicious specifically the steak tacos. The wine was quite flavorful, Price was fair for what we got overall great experience would definitely go there again.

    We made our reservation at the Fireside Lounge but it turns out it's the same restaurant as the Chophouse except the seating is indoors near the bar. It was a very warm day and the flies in the bar were a nuisance. We would have much preferred outdoor seating near the lake. The short rib was very tender and tasty, but a small portion for the price. The lobster linguine was a little bland, and the shells from the shrimp and lobster should be removed when served in pasta. Our server Nick was very friendly and helpful but he was also busy bartending so we had to wait for the check. Reserve an outdoor patio table at the Chophouse for a better dining experience.
