Got our order to go, steak was really good, but fries were soggy and they gave me no dressing for the salad when I had requested it, they put cottage cheese in my order! A little disappointed since I had read such great reviews!

Had lunch here with a friend and daughter. Buffalo chicken dip was good. Served with corn tortilla chips. I had a burger and added mushrooms and smoked gouda. Wasn't very smoky. Waffle fries were tasty. Best part of the meal was the bloody mary. Very tasty. Nice view.

September 11, 2016, The waitress was nice and attentive. The food was delicious. Really enjoyed our visit. Only downfall was the football and baseball televisions were too loud for my taste.

Came here with friends who live here - probably one of the nicest restaurants in the area to enjoy an evening out. Outdoor dining overlooks the Cedar River. Servers were busy and warned us that our order could take an hour as most outdoor tables were full. We ordered drinks and artichoke appetizer, which was very tasty. Most of the... More

We were here with a large group, and they gave us a separate room and were able to do a good job serving us. The menu and food were ok. Service was good. Overall pretty good value if you are not looking for anything special.

Every time I've gone there in the past several years, it's the same thing--poor service and food that is microwaved instead of prepared from scratch.

Great service and food! Would definitely recommend. Appetizers, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, and great drinks! Perfect for dinner or drinks!

Food was average. Portions were good but food needed more seasoning kind of blah. Service was ok. Our waiter seemed a bit hurried and impatient. Food was quick to come out and hot. Restaurant was a bit cold but we we seated by the windows. Nice decor.

Thank lmcmains
