Horrible service it took 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive. We decided that the service was so bad and the food menus so over priced that we would leave without eating. I then had to track down our waitress for the tab and it took 10 minutes just to pay for our 2 drinks. What a waist of time and money.

Wonderful restaurant and bar where you can relax and dine - or drink - along the picturesque Niagara River. Music four evenings a week. Food and staff are wonderful!!!!

Beautiful location right on the Niagara River. Lots of patio seating. A very enjoyable place to sit and listen to the evening entertainment. Tonight there was a wonderful Sinatra impersonator who was so good he had a following of fans. We sat on the patio and the music was so loud we really couldn't visit with our guests. But, that may have been our own fault since we opted for the outdoor over the inside seating. Inside is nothing fancy but again there is a wonderful view in a dinning room that is lined with windows. But the food....very pricey for just average food. $13 cheeseburger with a few fries was just average. Paid less in many places that were upscale and had a much better burger. Same with the $20 chicken pram....was good but we have had much better for much cheaper. If you go for the view or music it's great. Don't go for the over priced average food.

I first came here last summer, but have been back several times and I've always enjoyed the ambiance and the friendly staff. The food has ranged from decent to delicious. Their banana pepper soup is phenomenal! The salmon was also good.
They have dockside parking on the canal side, and have indoor and outdoor seating. On the weekends, they often have live music. It's right on the water, so you can expect a genlte river breeze and a fantastic view.
