Good service

Nice server very friendly. Food was pretty good at a fair price. Construction in progress near restaurant was a distraction though.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. I had a steak, loaded baked potato and sweet potato logs. The steak was grilled and smothered with pearl onions and mushrooms and was tender and delicious. The loaded potato and sweet potatoes were equally as good. The service was fast and friendly. I am looking forward to my next visit!

For about 7 years, I have love traveling north to Little River Casino. I would go to gamble—not crazy, but a conservative fun. I would go for the nice indoor, garden setting and outdoor courtyard of the hotel side. I would go to eat at either the Willows or the Heron. Moreover, I have stayed over in the hotel at... More

I love the perch, everything we have tried is good though. Very cozy dining next to the indoor lighted river.

We sometimes go to the breakfast buffet. They make omelets and you make your own toast. They usually have some kind of breakfast meats, fried potatoes, some fruit. The way the buffet is laid out it seems to get congested at times. The food is just okay.

Had a great quick meal here tonight...my husband and I both had the Spinach Salad...totally yummy...and we split a sandwich. Plenty of food for two! We cannot recommend the Spinach Salad enough. Everything about it is great! Might try adding some chicken the next time.

My friend and I had lunch during the week. I ordered the perch and it was delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. The setting is beautifuly, right next to the river, so you can see the water running over the rocks and hear the water splashing.
