Love the staff! Food is great ! It’s the only restaurant on Candlewood Lake and you get such a wonderful view of the lake from most of the seats there. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed a lovely seafood salad lunch with my daughter and grandson. Nothing says summer more than lunch at The Hatch!

Great spot even for kids. Food out fast and good as well and we just sat in the bar section so we had plenty of time for drinks and to relax (kids were behaved as well). Then we fed the ducks to top it off.

Great place to eat and drink on the water - beautiful lake view whether you sit in the sun, on the deck, or completely under cover. Great burgers, seafood sandwiches - drinks and an extensive beer menu. Live music by the waterfront on the weekends can't be beat. Every waitress friendly, attentive, and completely knowledgeable about the menu. I will happily return to this establishment.

Whatever I could have say would be extremely opinionated! Heck, I grew up here! However, it suffices to note that I've been coming back to the spot for longer than I would care to admit! Come by car or by boat, you are guaranteed a good time. It's like coming home!

If you get the chance you have to go down to the hatch great place to hang out watch the boats come in and out music great people great food. I will definitely make it a monthly trip or more. If you're out on a ride this is the place to be. Service was great staff is excellent.

Down the Hatch is a family favorite for us. It marks the beginning and end of summer and offers good food and casual outdoor dining on the shore of beautiful Candlewood Lake.
