Family meet up

With my parents family spread out all over the state we picked this place as a meet up to eat dinner based on a reference from some of their friends. They were accommodating to sitting 16 people on short notice. We were able to order and get all our food in an appropriate amount of time and... read more

Most of the food is pretty typical bar food but they also have some great salads and other dishes you wouldn't expect. The bar is seperate from the bigger dining area which is nice and they have a nice patio to sit on when the weather is nice. It's right on the river so you can sit and watch the... More

I can't really review much, I ordered a glass of wine and couldn't go any farther. I don't think it's the restaurant's fault so much although I have been to Brandy's and didn't have the same issue.... it smelled like raw sewage or rotting fish.... one wine and I was done.

This is a big place with a good sized bar, inside seating area and large patio, so I can see where service time can be an issue. I was here mid/late afternoon well before a weekend dinner rush. I was seated and waited on in good time, but when it came time to pay the check I had to track... More

Five for dinner on a Sunday night of a holiday weekend. We arrived right on time for our 7:00 reservations. They were not needed as we were one of only three occupied tables. The service was excellent with a friendly waitress. The problem was food choices which were limited due to a too oft reply, "we are out of that".... More

I used to like this restaurant, but I waited 20 min to get a waitress because she thought I was already waited on. That was after I went into the bar twice to ask for a waitress. 15 minutes after I ordered, she told me they were out of black olives for my pizza. It took an hour to get... More

Very interesting decorating and beautiful wood tables. Food was excellent with large portions. We had the Reuben sandwich which was huge and the smaller portion pork tenderloin sandwich which even though smaller hung over the side of the bun. Delicious!

We looked to TripAdvisor for a new place to eat in the LP area on a Sunday and decided on this place. It's kind of in an odd spot, but riverfront and I'm sure it's very nice when it's warm. They had a Bloody Mary bar (Not sure if this is Sunday only or everyday) that was stocked with many... More
