Reserve our Lakeside Lawn Patio, Captain’s Lounge, South Perch, Center Fireplace, Lake Deck, The Bar or book the entire restaurant.
The Fireplace area is located in the heart of the restaurant bordering our middle covered patio. It’s semi-private, great lake views of the lake, a 72 inch television and an oversized fireplace.
The beautiful lakeside area is easily our most popular outdoor space for larger parties and events. It has soft turf and redwood picnic tables. Occasionally the picnic table are replaced with eight-person table rounds for a little fancier feel.
The Bar has arguably the best views in the house. It features six flat screens, a stage, and a fifty-foot long bar. The bar is usually rented out with the lower bar and, in some circumstances, the adjacent Lake Deck.
The Darts Patio is an additional area adjacent available to both The Lawn and Captains Lounge. It borders The Bay and is great for games like corn-hole, darts and Jenga.
This lakeside patio is usually reserved for regular restaurant patrons but is conditionally available and often gets rented on days with multiple parties or events.
This super chill and private room has couches, tv’s, a pool table/ping-pong table and fireplace. Great for smaller private parties. It’s almost always rented out with The Lawn and Darts Patio for larger functions.
The South Perch
This area is beautifully perched on the interior of the South Shore of The Watershed. With a split level layout, views are everywhere. Two large flat-screen tv’s are available for sports viewing or A/V support.
