Checked reviews and this diamond sparkled. Great cocktails, food and atmosphere. Great views of the Mississippi and a nice outdoor patio. The owner was on the floor greeting tables giving the personal touch. I would recommend this establishment for an exceptional fine dining experience

I am sorry we did not exceed your expectations. Next Mother's Day we will not have a buffet but a limited menu.
