We were at this riverside restaurant in the fall so the outdoor seating was closed. The small intimate interior feels like a pleasant British pub. Very good service. We had the curry and the clam chowder. Yum.

We actually ate here twice, as we were staying in Winona (and our first dinner was good enough to make us come back). We eat an early dinner most of the time, so both times, there weren't many other people in this restaurant, although it filled up after a while. It's a small restaurant, so although there is outside seating,... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch on a fall afternoon. The location IS beautiful, but the quality of the food was poor and the service was slow. We ordered fish and chips, salad and chowder. The food took a looong time to arrive; we were told the delay was due to the kitchen staff (I noticed one person in... More

We planned to stop for just an appetizer, then go over to Wisconsin for our dinner. Never left! We sat at a 1/2 circle table attached to a wrought iron fence at the edge of the restaurant and the scenery was unbeatable. Blue sky, pretty white clouds in the sky, all the greenery, the Boat House flower garden and the... More

We had a a table overlooking the river on a warm summer night. It was great! Food decent, drink a little weak, but it was so pleasant overall, didn't care. Veggie options a plus.

We loved eating here last summer! The menu was small, but creative. Since we loved sitting on the deck, watching the Mississippi roll by, it was our favorite restaurant in Winona. We visited during the summer of 2013, but the date counter only goes back to September. The bridge over the river reminded us of the Ohio River Bridges Ashland,... More

The deck overlooking the river offered a nice view on a day with great weather. The barbecue sandwich was disappointing, though. The pork was dry, but thick and gloppy with a very sweet sauce. The french fries were good and the slaw on the sandwich was ok, but tey couldn't make up for the rest of the sandwich. Beverages weren't... More
