The view of the niagara river is the best part of this restaurant. First of all the food is non descript. My blackened chicken had little flavor outside of the small amount of sauce that was on the side. I asked for my fries to be crispy crunchy and I got anemic, limp fries. My husband had the cod and it was fine but is potatoes were cold. They were supposed to be horseradish flavored mashed potatoes. They had no flavor outside of the plain old potato flavor. The service was awful. The server never asked us if our dinners were OK. We were never offered coffee or dessert at the end of the meal. We waited 30 mins after the table was cleared to get our bill. We had to hunt down the server. it was a deeply disappointing experience and I will not return.BTW...each refill of soda is CHARGED FOR. No free refills.

I went with my husband and another couple. There was only indoor seating available with no air conditioning, in August. We made the best of it by ordering several cold drinks. The service was good, food good and atmosphere was good. I guess it was a good overall experience. The band, outdoors, was great.

A college classmate selected this place for a summer evening dinner. Being next to water and watching the sun set was awesome. We were able to hold a conversation without a hitch. The food was average. The service was great. Prices were reasonable. I would go there again.

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!!!!
