Dining room billed as "fine dining" listing steaks up to $36 (salad extra) and promotes wines at $10/glass. Has to be the worst joke around; combining bad choices and incompetence. Atmosphere is OK in a dark Victorian way, but hard wood chairs are a test of endurance. Food was a disaster. Ordered the prime rib, only to have it delivered... More

We went downtown with friends on a rainy summer day. By spending time at Charlie's Irish Pub we turned a gray day into a great Saturday. We started out inside, then realized we could sit outside, see the river and still listen to the beautiful music played by live musicians inside the bar. Fantastic! The food and service were great...

We wanted to stop and have a couple drinks before dinner and the staff acted like we were bothering them. The pattio wasn't even half full but when we tried to get a table they said it would be at least 10-20 minutes. They said they didn't have enough staff to cover the patio. We asked if we could ge...

We've been here a few times and always enjoy the outdoor patio overlooking the river and the food has always been tasty, though the service has been kind of slow. I got the salmon tonight and it was excellent. The view was also wonderful as usual. But, unfortunately that is where the praise ends. The service was absolutely horrible tonight.... More

Stopped in here for a quick drink. I wish I could say it was quick. Took 10-15 minutes for a server to grab our order. Then another 10 to get our drinks. We had reservations at another place so we needed to leave quick. The sever was no where to found for 15 minutes. Had to flag someone down. I... More

We sat out on the patio early Saturday for shrimp and walleye. The shrimp scampi was tasty, rice was ok, green beans were excellent and perfectly done. The walleye had many many bones and a bit mushy. The potatoes and green beans, again were excellent. What surprised me a bit was the fact that we were not offered any bread... More

We visited this restaurant and ordered the walleye dinner and a porterhouse steak. The walleye dinner was ok but had a gravey that didn't enhance the flavor of the fish or allow you to really taste the fish. The porterhouse was probably one of the worst steaks I have ever been served. It had so much gristle and fat that... More

We visited this restaurant with family on Labor Day, 4 adults and 1 child. We chose to be seated outdoors as the weather was great. We were advised by the hostess that the wait for food would be about 45 minutes, we said that that was not a problem for us as we were just going to order drinks. We... More

We stopped at this restaurant as it was a beautiful day and they have a large outdoor patio. Should have gone elsewhere. After waiting for a hostess for 5 minutes, I went to the bar to ask to be seated. After being seated we waited, waited, and waited for a server. I once again went to the bar for a... More
