Popped in for a couple of appetizers! Coconut shrimp and stuffed mushrooms. Service started out slow but came back with apologies and was very attentive after. Looking at the river while eating was a great treat!

Not much to review here.It is terrible! The mussels had over half of them closed. When the waitress called for a manager the manager argued that closed mussels only needed to be cooked longer - mmmm, don;t think so. The view is gorgeous along the river but take it in from some other place, not here.

The waitress that we had was not friendly at all. Im not sure if she was the owner or maybe just the manager that night but she was awful. We ordered drinks and appetizers then waited about 45 minutes before we ever flagged her down to put in our meal order. Once our meals came, she never came back to... More

I don't usually write reviews but this was a bad experience. When we placed our order we were told dinner may take "awhile" because they "had a sudden pop" in guests. "A while" turned out to be over an hour. We finally got fed up and asked for our food to go. I know mistakes happen, but in my experience... More
