What it is
If you are out near the 13-mile marker by water, or Shawnee Bend by land, be sure to stop by the lake's newest hot spot ― Scallywag's. Owners Ron and Nicole Duggan bring the same dining experience and quality food that customers have come to expect from their Mother Ship, Captain Ron's in Sunrise Beach.
