Overall experience was wonderful. Food was great and the ambiance was beautiful. Our servers, David and Aaron, were amazing. Davis was so engaging, funny, personable while professional at the same time. He made the experience fun and gave me a reason to want to come back. A+++++

About the restaurant
Our design concept is 'Water". Water brings relaxation to our minds, restoration to our bodies, and enjoyment in our lives. The wave like curve of our roofline draws you into our welcoming lobby with a beautiful blown-glass chandelier and spectacular handcrafted canoe. See our 4,000 gallon salt-water aquarium, featuring live mangrove trees and a variety of aquatic life. Enter our main dining area through a two-story houseboat, salvaged from our original location. Restore yourself under the canopy of our tree forest beginning with a raw-edge slab wood bar through to our main dining and large party room, boasting amazing views of Lake Allatoona and spectacular sunsets.
