Got there around 4:30 and by 6:00 there was a 40 minute wait. You could tell it wasn't high season crowded but still busy.

Great food and service. Have been there almost weekly. Best to go about 4:30 before the crowd. However, usually room at the bar until your table is ready. Last time there, a pontoon plane landed. Many folks on boats pull up for dinner. Great sunsets also.
You're going to love the place.

The place was so quiet for so many years that neighbors never anticipated the current crowd and noise. Many homes now have "For Sale " signs.

Why are many of the piers in the area 10 foot above the water - is the lake that low?

Yes, most lakes in Florida are that low.

Sadly, that is pretty much the norm for every lake in central and north Fla
