I sat on the patio overlooking the pool. It was nice to relax after a long drive. I tried the Apple Orchard, Saint Louis Man, and a Moscow Mule. All were delicious drinks but I did miss the copper cup for the mule. My waitress suggested the shrimp and grits for dinner. I was happy I went with her advice.... More

The food was okay, we both had burgers and they were okay. The drinks were well apportioned but it was that the rudeness of the staff that would keep us from ever... More

We recently had cocktails and appetizers at Café Eau. We sat at the bar. so we could watch NCAA basketball. We had a couple glasses of wine (each) and the calamari. We enjoyed the wine, and the calamari was very good. Having lived on the west coast for quite a few years, we are always leery of ordering calamari in... More

My wife and I had drinks here while we waited for our friend to join us. Grace was our bartender and was very friendly and offered good service. The Cafe connects to the pool area. It looks like it would be a great place to be during the warmer months. The Cafe also has an ice bar which looks really... More

We ate at the Cafe Eau; the food was very good. However, we could not hear enough to carry on a conversation because the music was too loud. I would recommend the Bistro which is not as noisy.
