The Rueben my daughters had lacked enough 1000 island dressing and could have had more meat for the price. The sweet potato portion my friend had was $2 extra and... More

After the boat ride, this was a good place to rest and have a good meal. Nice people and just as good views. Food was very good and reasonable.

I ordered Perch for dinner and received a huge portion but it was heavily coated and deep fried. Not what I expected. My husband ordered ribs and said they were very good. Friendly attentive service.

Loved this restaurant. First it was affiliated with the hotel we stayed at. But mostly, we had breakfast and dinner there and both were excellent, and the service was great.
