Went there recently for a business dinner. Their main attraction? Location! Overlooking the river. Problem-you can hardly SEE the river through the dirty windows. The meal was nice, good food, good wine, pleasant server, but just couldn't get past the multitude of spider eggs all over the window. If this place got a manager that cared about the details, it...

The big attraction to us was the fact that they make their pasta fresh daily. It is one of the few area restaurants where we can get fresh spinach pasta dishes. Of course the river view is awesome also as the restaurant is built over the Mississippi river.

Very good upscale restaurant cantilevered on an abandon bridge pier over a bay of the Mississippi River. It offers excellent views of the bridges and river from an elevated vantage point. The food has always been excellent. Sunday's prime rib breakfast buffet is a real experience. Prime rib, omelettes prepared to order and a full range of other fare make... More

We had a very peaceful, delicious meal in a restaurant that overlooked the Mississippi River. The food was excellent, prepared the way we requested. The wait staff was attentive, friendly and anticipated our needs. The quiet atmosphere, with soft music was just the right touch for our meal.

Our family visited here with a large group of people to celebrate a few graduates. They have a Sunday brunch buffet and boy, was it ever delicious. So many choices. The only thing they could have added were possibly chicken strips for the little tykes who don't much care for 'grown-up' food. The service was exceptional considering the size of... More

We made reservations four hours before arriving. The view inside is amazing; the bridge, sunset, and water view all right there. The service is very good. The food was flavorful, perfect temperature, and good servings. We ordered lobster mac and cheese for an appetizer. Beer is cheap- $2.75. I figured it'd be over 5.00 a piece. My husband ordered the... More

Visitng our daughter at Quincy University we decided to eat near the river. The view and atomosphere were pleasant. The food was good with a nice variety to choose from. We hope to return sometime before she graduates.
