The patio here is amazing and the view spectacular. However the service is not the best and the good is over priced. If you do go for a drink on the deck and get hungry, the Greek pizza is cheap and actually pretty yummy.

Their patio needs some updating, its getting run down. Additionally the bugs got so bad that we had to move inside. Our entrees were average at best, my said her prime rib dinner was tough and she didn't enjoy it.

The view on the deck is wonderful, with the river running below. But the food is only mediocre. Having eaten there several times, I do not go for the food. The wine is only fair, with offerings from $5 to $6.75 per glass in the reds. The night before, I had a $9 wine that was so good. But they... More

Overall the experience was great. The food tasted amazing. The atmosphere on the deck was great. We had good service as well. My only complaint was that they charged extra for the salad. One of the best steaks I have eaten. Dessert was also really good.

We had a group of 15 people and we had a wonderful experience. We sat outside on the patio by the river. It got a little chilly at night, but I brought a light sweater and I was fine. The staff was friendly and prompt and the food was absolutely delicious. I definitely will return when I'm back in the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our white water rafting guide who said they have great dollar tacos on Wednesdays. The waitress was barely friendly & wasn't too pleased that we would be ordering the tacos. I feel she was hoping to get a bigger ticket & bigger tip from us. We also ordered two appetizers, two kids' meals,... More

This restaurant is located next to a river so the scenery is quite nice. They have patio seating too for an even better view. The food was delicious and presented in an appealing manner on the plate. The side dishes were creative. Prices were good and they did not charge extra for sharing a meal.

Our first time at this restaurant in Glenwood. Beautiful dining room in a great spot with the Roaring Fork River rushing by below. The Aspen salad with salmon was delicious. My husband had prime rib and said it was very good as well. Will be back!
