Maynards is the best in terms of outdoor space and feel and ability to enjoy the lakeshore! Entertainment is great as well during the mid summer months. Food could be better on the patio. But overall I much prefer the experience of Maynards vs others.

Lord Fletcher's is tops in outdoor space, food and service. The multilevel seating provides ample space for meeting friends or people and boat watching. The entertainment varies from music to volley ball games. The setting is less commercial than other sites--like you're at 'the lake'.

The Maynard's patio is great, but the food and the service are both so mediocre! It's really too bad. The Bayside view and entertainment are awesome, but they really need more tables on the patio. Fletcher's always offers great service and a fun atmosphere!
