I will tell you, this was a story. We went to Gastons in the morning to see where it was for dinner that night. We were greeted warmly and stayed for some time just looking around at the beautiful facility there. We told that greeter we would be back for dinner. Well we went back so looking forward to enjoying... More

This restaurant was recommended to us. The location is fantastic - overlooking the White River. The decor is fascinating.... antiques cover every inch of the place including hanging from the ceilings. Since we are in "trout" country, I chose the pan fried rainbow filet which was overcooked and dry. My husband had the fish and chips which had absolutely NO... More

Always a great getaway. We enjoy the laid back atmosphere. Beautiful setting on the White River. The restaurant is good. Tennis, playground, pool, game room, and marina kept everyone busy.

If not for this one shortcoming, I would have rated them five stars. My wife had the chicken fried chicken, and she was well pleased with her meal.... More

Took freshly caught trout to restaurant, hostess complained about how they always require a two hour notice to prepare. She did this about three times. About half of our party ate the trout (they would only do fried since we didn't give them two hour notice - fourth time). Trout was kind of Meh..... Not great, but fried. Next day... More

Had dinner with a group of work colleagues and had an amazing evening. Excellent food, brilliant service, a wonderful setting above the river and, to top it all, great company. Highly recommended.

It has a little of everything,and a lot of fishing. Greatest fishing spot in America. Staff,accommodations were great. Kid friendly. Price is right for what you get. Immaculate cabins. Starting to plan next trip. Watching Bald Eagles fish on the river was a plus.
