Wow! What a Reuben!

If you're a sandwich lover ( who likes to sit next to a river during a meal) this place is for you. My guest had their famous Reuben sandwich and had plenty left over for an afternoon snack. Crisp grilled bread and truly melt in your mouth corned beef. I chose lighter fare and Ordered the Greek... read more

Went here based on some reviews from some locals saying they had the best Reuben's. I'm don't really care for Reuben's but I have to say it's one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. I also tried their prime rib sandwich and that was pretty excellent as well especially when you ask for some au jus on the side.... More

When I arrived I knew I wanted to sit on the patio, but it was cool and the only tables left in the sun had lots of children. My waitress, Tracy, seated me overlooking the water and recommended the ham & cheese croissant special. It was quite chilly on the patio and as I had left my jacket in the... More

Our server was nice but a little obnoxious. We were brought the wrong order, the server just threw it down and left so I had to flag down our server to tell her it wasn't our food. The food was just ok, nothing special, we weren't impressed and probably will not go back. We don't eat Rubin sandwiches, so it... More

So sit on the patio with a river view and be sure to eat the Reuben. Best Reuben I've ever had! Husband had the salad and eh... The blue cheese dressing was great but the rest of the salad was like a bar salad. Nothing special. The mustard though was really good too and a great beer selection

Wife and I heard about the restaurant from a few folks and decided to stop on by. The service was great... and saw a sign "30yrs Best Reuben"... so decided to make it my mission to give it a try. ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC! Give it a try!

Pleasant atmosphere and fine service at this older establishment. We ordered the Wiener Schnitzel which was not incredibly great. The server had suggested the Reuben, which I will definitely try next time. The German beers were amazing....of course....no surprise there! I felt the prices were a little high, but it is a tourist town. I was pleased with the prompt... More

We eat here at least twice during our visits. The Turkey Reuben is amazing. Sit outside along the river and enjoy the view. It can be a little nippy in late fall but get a hot cider to keep you warm. It's worth it. Everything we have ever had here over the years has been great. One of those places... More
