Our food was hit miss. My wife's was great lamb meatballs linguini. I had island burger and then had sh#ts for next hour. Prices were good, patio was good. Service was good by some and not so good from others.

Nice location, friendly server but my vegetables had spent too much time on the grill. Ribs were good and portion also. Wife had a salad and a wrap and it was good too. Took a long time to get our food. Would try again.

Stopped on a whim for lunch and had a great meal. Buffalo hot dogs and a very personable staff. Would recommend for sure. :-)

The patio has a great view of the river, with lots of flowers in planters and baskets! We had a great lunch here and the service was good. The menu has a good selection.

Like others, we were lured by the great patio. It's a fabulous spot by the river and they've done a beautiful job with the flowers and hanging baskets. The inside of the restaurant is really pleasant too. Unfortunately the food did not match up. We had the green curry special. The chicken was swimming in an oily sauce that was... More

Went for Breakfast on Sunday Morning and sat on the roof top patio, which is right next to the river. The sun was shining the breeze was cooling and the food could not have been better, combine that with the very friendly service and HEAVEN. I could have happily sat there all day, drinking their delicious coffee and taking in... More

I planned to stop by Golden in the midst of my road trip back to BC from Alberta. I searched this restaurant from the web which said it served lunch. It was a good pick. The foods were excellent though it took longer than expected time to arrive on my table. I ordered a Ciabatta Club and a Hot &... More
