I stopped into town and returned to this eatery and was still pleased!! Up on entering I was greater by a friendly staff who made you feel welcome. In addition I received very friendly and attentive service from my waitress who added to the overall experience. The food served here is still very good, and the burgers are great!! As always I will return to Waterstreet Pub.

Nice restaurant down by the river. It was a little tricky finding it. It was clean and friendly atmosphere. Service was good and food came out quickly. Between the 3 of us we had salad, Mac and cheese and BBQ pork sandwich and fries. Fries were the best. Salad was large and very good. BBQ pork was small on the serving size. Mac and cheese was different but ok.
Nothing to rave about but ok.

Though a bit had to find at first - we really enjoyed our visit through Peru in our way from Corvette Funfest in Effingham. Large menu. Huge portions. Fish was white and very tasty. Fish Taco was humongous!! Enough for two people to share. Waitress was very helpful and played along with some of our silliness. My only complaint would be that the womens bathroom needs upgrading and a good cleaning. We will certainly stop back next year on our way back from Funfest.

.The burgers were large and tasty. We had the fries and they were good. They have a large selection of good whiskey and beer.
