Good food and a great view

If you like sitting outside and watching the river, this is agood little restaurant. We ate here twice recently. The have a full service menu and bar. We had the ribs and flat iron steak, which were both very good. Service was goo and they have live music upstairs in the bar on weekends.

The food is great and the view is excellent from the patio of Watts Bar Lake. The fish dinners are very well prepared, and the sides are very tasty. I enjoyed the Blackened Tilapia, Spinach Maria and Mac and Cheese. We enjoyed the band playing, as we ate our food. It's a great place to go.

They have musicians playing certain nights of the week, and it's lovely to sit outside, enjoy the good music, and food.

The food is good and the view is excellent from the patio. It's a great place to go, especially in the summer when they have live bands performing outside.

We had been here one last summer because of the outside deck, looking onto the river...but we found the food to be very good. We were traveling towards Knoxville Sunday,, and decided on a late lunch. When we arrived a large after church party was breaking up, and we had the place to ourselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I... More

Our 2nd time here in less then a month...flame broiled, hand formed burgers are awesome! And huge hand breaded, sweet onion rings that are to die for. Service is not the best but not the worst either. The view is lovely also.

When this restaurant first opened it had the best Fish and Chips I'd ever eaten. We have been back a couple of times and the food it just not good in our opinion. I was shocked when I ordered a side of applesauce and it came out in one of those disposable containers with the foil lid I'm not a... More

Always like the food at this restaurant. My last trip the shrimp were large and tasty, as were the fries. The cheese cake is to die for even though it's a little pricey. They server was inattentive to our needs....you have to ask for rolls, but she did not return until dinner was almost finished which was too late !
