Unfortunately we chose to visit on graduation day and the place was packed with graduates and their families so very noisy. What made up for it was the best waitress ever. I don't remember her name but she is a mom to 2 and step...More

Monday night is Burger night and you get a huge burger with a side of hot fries for only six dollars. You can have the burger cooked the way you want, sides you want and it's always piping hot and absolutely delicious! The service here...More

We took our father here for lunch since it's close by to him and he likes. It's located in a strip mall and non-descript from the outside. Inside the decor could use some TLC and updating, but the food was delicious! My father-in-law ordered one...More

Was in town to visit family and we went here. Casual, quiet, hometown joint. The Friday night specials offer a little something different. Simple American food. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was quick and hot. Will definitely go back!

This is a great restaurant for family meals. My wife and I love the triple decker club sandwiches and onion rings. Excellent hamburgers and homemade fries. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with daily specials. Most selections $10 or less. The wait staff...More

My son and I have visited the River Bound Cafe for breakfast a few times this fall. Service is always quick and friendly. The food is good and pretty inexpensive. It's definitely a good place to take young kids.

Peggy, We're always happy to hear nice things about our waitstaff, but are sad that we've yet to "wow" you with any of our offerings. We hope we'll have another chance very soon!

Came upon this cafe while avoiding Sunday traffic around 295. Food was plentiful; split a Monster Omelette, tasty but a little dry. Potatoes would have 5 stars had they been served hot, great taste. Waitresses seemed more interested in their 2 pm close up prep...More
