Good food and great location.

The place has a great view and the food is very good. The shrimp was great and the prices are a little high but worth it.

We went for an evening meal as a family gathering after at funeral. The place had windows on two sides with a view of the river, but we were not seated near those windows. The reservation was for 17, but only 15 places were set. Since those two had 2 small children, they were seated at a near-by table. With... More

Wife and I had read several reviews on Tripadvisor so decided to give it a shot and was not disappointed. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, mainly because I never have had them before, I thought they were okay, not something I'd have to have again but wouldn't avoid it either. Wife ordered Shrimp and grits and I the prime... More

Although my companions had been there before, this was my first visit and will not be my last. We arrived 6pm on a Saturday eve. The wait to be seated was maybe 10 min. We were placed near the windows with an absolutely beautiful view of the water. I ordered steak, while everyone else ordered seafood. We were all equally... More

I've been here twice now and both times was unimpressed. People raved about this place so I gave it a second try. One time I had the shrimp pasta, and it was just spaghetti with cheese melted on top and shrimp thrown on. The next time I came back, two years later I was still unimpressed. The service was pretty... More

Tucked away on a river bank, this Resturant offers great food with a beautiful view. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area.

The food is pretty good. The catfish is very good, grilled chicken is good. I also like the squash. The Cheese Pie!!!! It's awesome! The atmosphere is very nice, overlooking the river is tranquil. The private meeting room is okay...a little dated. The party pavilion is very nice. Delivery and pick up is nice. I've always received adequate service.

I gave this place an average because it took about an hour to get our food and we had called ahead to let them know we were coming with a group, I guess if it's just a couple shouldn't be too bad. Food was very good so if there aren't too many in your group I would say go. Great... More

Good customer service and food. I've regularly eat here for 15+ years, so if anyone know then it should be me. I never had a complaint against this establishment in any regards.

Food and wine was very good. Excellent waiter and didn't have to wait long in the meal considering it was very busy that night. Highly recommend you make reservations as it gets very crowded. Beautiful setting but parking can fill up fast.
