The Best of Local Bounty
From picnics on the lawn to celebratory, candlelit dinners at Rose Tavern, and fresh oysters enjoyed lakeside at the Sand Bar during the summer months, there’s an atmospheric dining option for every moment of life. Equal parts American tavern and forward-thinking bistro, Rose Tavern features a menu designed to showcase the region’s stellar produce and internationally celebrated wines. And there’s no better way to cap a day at the lake than by sliding into a sun-warmed seat at the Sand Bar, cold beer in hand.View all
