It is a beautiful location right on the river and we saw several canoes and river rafts as well as cyclists and joggers on the trail besides the river. Four kids &... More

Stayed at Doubletree Hotel and restaurant is connected to hotel which usually means overpriced and so-so food. Not so. Great breakfast...made to order omelets and waffles. Good dinner when you are to tired to go out on the town.

I loved going here for my birthday this year. So much that we returned several times before the patio closed for the winter. Lunch was really tasty! Great value and great food! Burgers are good, fish and chips is REALLY tasty! Waitresses were really friendly!

Our family came in for dinner on July 4th. I had the burger, and I must say, with the home made bun and great presentation this was the best that I have ever had. My family enjoyed a pizza and were very pleased. The fireworks, the band and the river location, We all had a fantastic time.
