    Food: Okay – it is with great pain that I type that the food is a 3.5. We had been waiting for the double lobster tail dinner for months ever since we decided to do the meal plan… but I have to say it was nothing special! The lobster tails were average sized, and they had clearly been frozen and had a slight chewy texture. Also they had no flavor other than the butter. Served with rice pilaf that tasted out of a box. Also green beans were good but oily. The shrimp cocktail was LARGE and good, but again – nothing special. We also got spinach artichoke dip that we thought was “okay.” Nothing special – I think all things considered, Red Lobster would have been better. There was nothing at all “signature” about this meal – we did get a good value being on the dining plan, but even if we are on the dining plan again in future years we will not eat here.

    Atmosphere: I would say the actual restaurant atmosphere is a 3 because it is stuck in a 1970’s time warp. The view from the back is a knockout and it is a 10!!!

    Okay for Children: “just okay” The dessert choices are a “buried treasure smoothie” made with bar mixers (???) or fruit. We chose the fruit. The kids also had an appetizer choice of clam chowder (?) – so we got it and ate it. Was decent.

    Okay for Couples: yes – nice views

    Be Sure to Try: Key lime pie was VERY GOOD and VERY TART if you like that. But – I would say skip this restaurant and go anywhere else instead.

    TheMouseForLess tips: If you are paying for your meal, it would be good to have a nice bowl of soup and split an app. I would not eat a full meal here and pay for it. Save your money and go to Earl of Sandwich.

    Be Sure to Try:The Pot Raost it was so very tender and the portion they gave was very good size.

    General Tips: No special tips just if you like sitting by the window was really cool your able to watch the boats on the lake.

    TheMouseForLess tips: The portion sizes seemed much more then some restuarants I’ve been in.

    Be Sure to Try: The spinach artichoke dip was one of the best I’ve ever had.

    General tips: I think this restaurant is much less crowded at lunch time than it is at dinner time. We were seated right away around 1:00 in the afternoon, and there were quite a few empty tables around us.

    TheMouseForLess tips: The items on the dinner menu are much more expensive than the ones on the lunch menu. I would recommend going at lunch time if possible to save money on the entrees.

    Extra Comments: Definitely stick to the seafood items here. The french dips weren’t as good as the other items that we ordered.

    Be Sure to Try: Our food was plain at best.

    General tips: We did not have ADR’s and were about the only people in the restaurant at 6pm.

    TheMouseForLess tips: I can’t say enough about the Dining Plan. We are a family that prefers sitting to eat, rather then eating on the run. I would have felt completely cheated if I had to pay for this meal! I guess my Mouse For Less Tip would be to eat somewhere else.

    Extra Comments: The hostess seemed like we were bothering her when we asked how long the wait would be. The waitress ignored us most of the time. In any restaurant, I am disturbed to hear personal conversations between the wait staff while I am eating. I really didn’t care what they thought of their manager and their tips.

    Be Sure to Try: The drinks!! I had the Fuzzy Captain!! Unreal!! I also had for food :) The shrimp and crab pasta. It was really really good! DH had the Fench dip which was good too!

    General tips: We had an ADR, but most likely would have been seated anyway. The lunch crowd is a little slow.

    TheMouseForLess tips: The food is really good for the price you pay..

    Extra Comments: The food was excellent. The service even better. We watched the boats in the water while we ate. You felt like you were in the water here. A great place for an afternoon break. And did I mention the DRINKS????
