Great food, super-friendly service

There are countless amazing restaurants up and down the coast, but if you're traveling with your family and want a simple, casual atmosphere with surprisingly tasty food, this is your place. We didn't try anything crazy - pizza, burger, fettuccine alfredo and salads for the fam - but each one of us... read more

If i could give this place a 0 i would. very dirty inside and out, the outside seating they have to offer is covered in cigarette buts, the food wasn't worth a penny in my pocket, and the service was unbelievable. I decided i would sit at the bar, thinking i could grab a quick drink maybe an appetizer and... More

The food was decent and the service was ok. Our server was the only one working and had a ton of tables. I thought she did a fantastic job considering how busy she was. The food left something to be desired but it was ok.

We were in Camden for the high school drama festival. This was recommended by our Inn owner. By far our 19 year old son's favorite place in Camden. You can feel the vibrations from the waterfall outside the windows. The food was good too, we had burgers and pizza! A local gem

This place is awesome if your in Camden, It has an old style look to it (mill style) with rough wood bards and all wooden seating. But it is all clean and nicely polyurethane and painted ceiling. It has an AMAZING view of the waterfall by the Camden River. The food is really good I've eaten a few times here... More

Nice view of the falls. Large group accommodated. Old mill interior, could have been warmer , bathroom extremely cold. Pleasant server. Pool tables, locals, sports on tv. Some unusual menu items, fried green beans, for example. Loud, casual, nice hangout.

Comfortable bar and table area to watch a variety of sports on the 4-5 screens. Nice selection of beers that are served cold and graciously. Food is typical sports bar food, the usual classic comfort food for sports fans. Juicy burgers and tasty fries. Best sports viewing option in Camden.

Food was fine - exactly what you expect from a sports bar. Lots of televisions. Comfortable place for a family looking to watch the game.

Hard to see the place from the street. Took ten minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us. Ordered a pizza took 40 minutes for the pizza, hope your not in a hurry. Pizza was good but not 40 min good. Service is terrible

This is a big rustic bar with a great selection of draft beer. The view out the window is beautiful! Bartender was very friendly even to annoying tourists! We didn't eat there, but the food looked good. Will go back next summer for sure.
