Excellent

Not much to look at from the outside but we decided to give it a try. Needs a little updating but the food was excellent and worth every penny. We sat outside so we could watch the boats go by on the river. Very friendly staff. Would definitely eat there again.

Although the patio and restaurant itself are nicely situated, this restaurant's food is merely average to above-average, and overpriced at times. I splurged and ordered the steak and lobster ($32) and was disappointed with the undercooked (ordered med-well and it was med, at best) and cheapish cut of beef. Really, you could get the steak at a pub for much... More

We have always had good meals here. There is a big outdoor patio overlooking the South Thompson River. The service there is excellent and the menu is varied.

nice table on the patio. prompt service. dinner served on HOT plates ! Portions just right. Potatoes were crisp and tasty. Steak was tender and juicy. Vegetables were an assortment, of colours and crisp. Wine was cold and well priced. I cannot say enough about just how perfect the whole evening was. This is an excellent operation in my opinion....

Very nice restaurant, very subdued lighting, so no good trying to read my book! There were outside tables if you wanted them, but I thought it was a little cold, so I ate inside. Good service. I had mahi-mahi and rice, which was very nice.

We were recommended this place and we were so glad. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was cosy with the lights subdued - you didn't feel you were in a big restaurant. The portion sizes were not too big which was good and meant we could enjoy our meals without feeling overfaced. Would definitely recommend going here to eat... More

This place is a solid eatery for the area and after several visits we can say it's consistently good. The decor (both inside & out) needs to be hauled out of the 70's as it currently resembles a frail attempt at "Hotel California" but the food is very good (not cheap) and the patio is lovely. One caution is that... More

Staying at the motel next door so thought we'd give it a try as it had decent reviews and menu. Attractive decor and waterfront view, excellent service and the food was very good. I'd have said excellent except for one thing. I ordered garlic bread to go with my cobb salad for $1.75 This was the saddest piece of garlic... More

Used to be good food, Terrible service, atrocious management. Steak was overcooked, sent it back, waitress (admittedly found out at the end of the night talking to the manager that she was new) came back and offered to overcook it more. Then avoided the table the 30 minutes it took to manage a replacement steak (rest of the table was... More
