GORGEOUS SETTING ON THE rIVER; eXCELLENT FOOD, ADEQUATE sERVICE

This restaurant is literally ON the river, which rushes beneath....and it even gurgles. The restaurant itself needs upgrading--quite a bit of scuffed paint and worn edges, and the menu is on the pricey end of Moderate. Service was a little slow, but our food was piping hot and prepared to... read more

Went for dinner. It was not busy. We had very prompt friendly service. Our server was very nice, but I would guess she was very new to the job. When quizzing her about items on the menu she seemed to be caught off guard and had to return to the kitchen to ask someone else. I think the service can... More

Went here with my husband and his mother and his brother 3 year old in 2012 and it was a great evening! It's a little pricy but well worth it! The service and food was really good and I hope to finally come back soon

They Wowed me. Excellent food, Excellent Service, Great view, but hey I am a Newfie so put me near water and I am in love. I must admit a few years ago I had a bad experience at this place so I was a bit gun shy. I've heard other people say it's great but when my husband suggested we... More

Great tasting food, great service and a wonderful setting on the Thompson River. The restaurant could use some reno's though. Would make the dining experience nicer.

Great menu and always a perfect server. Storms has a good recipe for success and has been consistent over the many times we have celebrated special occasions there, or just gone out for a night out.

Wonderful food and great service even though it was very busy. Will definitely go again. Seating could be more comfortable and in better repair.

Great selection of dishes and reasonable prices. Better than the Keg or Earl's. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Bench seats were a bit wobbly and building could you a little touch up.
