Met promptly, seated where we wanted with several openings on late evening mid-week, with private party in separate room, and some in the bar....pretty good for a rainy night. Waitress Heather was right there with our drinks, order and following up our special requests to our food. Few items in table presentation are only reason for reduced rating...no bread plate... More

A frequent visitor to this place. Always friendly and great food for the value. Nice to have a cocktail on the deck on the river. We either travel by boat or car. And the bar tenders are great too!

Enjoyed a steak without using the A-1 and the mashed taters were delicious. My wife enjoyed her walleye and green beans. Attentive service, good view of the water, and easy to find.

Were in the area with friends for my husbands birthday and thought this would be a good place to enjoy dinner. Wrong. Although they have a great outdoor seating area and views of the Mississippi River inlet and boat dock, we didn't want to eat our dinner with the flies and bugs so chose to set indoors by the windows...

Ate there tonight with my son and my wife. Never ever again. The food came out so greasy you could have lit it on fire.... Which would have been helpful because everything came out cold and soggy. There was no way we could finish it because it was so disgusting. To top things off we weren't even halfway home and... More

I've been to this restaurant for lunch and dinner and I've even been here for a rehearsal dinner. They can handle a rehearsal dinner better than a 2-top over lunch on a slow day. Either they are understaffed or their staff is terrible and these people don't know how to wait table. The food is decent but overpriced. Took 20... More

The waiter was uninformed on what the menu choices were. The buffet was full of flies. Breakfast menus were provided then when ordered were denied. Cold food was hot, hot food was cold.

On a Sunday evening, they were not busy yet two waitresses and the hostess kept us waiting for five minutes while they talked amongst themselves giggling, smirking, and staring at us. It gets worse...the manager was there too and did nothing to encourage them to seat us and act professionally. In fact, he gave one excuse after another for them.... More
