Lake Anna Life & Times Summer 20 17 22 eat&drink Whether you are a resident or a visitor, another LKA™ Must-Do is Anna Cabana. Perched high atop a grassy knoll, the view of the lake is spectacular. This is the place for family enter- tainment, great cocktails and good eats. Go by boat or drive-in to Anna Cabana. The restaurant overlooks the middle of the lake, on Sturgeon Creek, and offers a great sunset. Manager Joe Messett, a happily retired postal employee from Mary- land, has been cooking up great Lake Anna specials for years. He puts pride into his generous por- tions and homemade sauces. Two of the local favorites are his fish tacos and crab cakes. If you like shrimp, try the Creole shrimp skewers. If nachos are more to your liking, try the Porky’s Na- chos with Messett’s special BBQ Indoor/Outdoor Waterside Dining Dock Access For Boaters Open 7 Days A WeekYear ‘Round 200 BoardwalkWay, Mineral,VA 23117 timslakeanna.com 540.894.5011 HOT CRABS!
