Attended the ACA Rally at the fairgrounds. Went out to dinner with a group of 24. We were seated in a party room with Jessica as our server. She was awesome especially since she was also helping out with tables in the dining room. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. My husband and I had the Fish... read more

Just stopped in one day after getting all turned around due to the railroad crossing repairs in Elkhart. Since we are from Mishawaka, it didn't take much to get us turned around. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the server and food. We'll be back, lost or not.

I just noticed another Mother's Day buffet review for this restaurant. I'm inclined to agree with that reviewer. I didn't consider that they would only be serving a "brunch" from 10 to 3. Brunches aren't our favorite, but since we were there we went ahead with it. In my opinion the restaurant layout did not lend itself to a buffet... More

For $25 per person we expected a much larger variety of food. In addition nothing was outstanding. Most of the food was averagely good. Nice atmosphere and service. Unfortunately for the restaurant it was a rainy day so the the Riverwalk's appeal was negated. For the next special occasion we will search elsewhere.

We were in Elkhart for the first time. Found the restaurant from ads in local tourist magazines. It was a lovely change from the down home Amish food we had been having on our trip to the area. We both opted for salads. I had the seafood salad which had shrimp, scallops and REAL crab, not the imitation stuff some... More

The food was great, perfectly prepared and we were able to request special items that were not on the menu (thanks Terri for going the extra mile). Jeanne our waitress/entertainment director/superstar was absolutely flawless. If you know our family (25 unorganized, musical chair playing noisy people), we are not easy. What Jeanne did on her own was nothing short of... More
