Dine by the lake in style at the Lakefront Restaurant. It’s a wonderful spot for lunch or evening dining, and it has some great views of the lake. How could it not, the name says it all. They offer a variety of seafood, including lobster and trout. However, I, being something of a creature of habit, went for a pasta dish. This time I chose the Chicken Breast Florentine Fettucini which came with a side of seasonal vegetables and was served with garlic bread. This fettucini was made with spinach pasta and chardonnay creamed garlic sauce on top which made it a bit tangy compared to an alfredo sauce but was absolutely delicious. I would definitely have this again.
