Stopped in for an early lunch on a Saturday morning...server was friendly, time from order to food on the table was quick, wife's Club sandwich was very good, my buffalo wings were okay...a little on the vinegary side and just a tad too done...but overall a good visit. Nice atmosphere.

First time visiting here. We wanted to try it the first time without the kiddos. Went on a Friday night. Not sure if they take reservations, but we didn't make any. Got there about 6:30pm and we were told the wait would be about 35-40 minutes. It ended up being about 30-35. Our server was Katie and she was AWESOME!... More

In my opinion, this is the best places to eat in a 50 mile radius. The food is always awesome. The services is fast and friendly. When my dad died a few weeks ago I brought my mom to have lunch. She LOVED it. We had the daily special and she had so much food left over, she was able... More

I was very very disappointed. The waiter never brought me a refill. He brought other ladies in our group water. I had to eat my ice, to keep from being so thirsty. The steaks were average. Mine had a tremendous amount of fat in it. More fat than meat. I ordered my steak medium, however it was rare. No one... More

The service from the staff is good and the food is good. The location on the river makes for a pleasant atmosphere. The outside sitting area is incredible.
