The food is very good, and you can sit outside and have a view of the river

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 !

The food is good - their are some items better then others. The service is good and attentive. The location looking out on the Clinch River is excellent. The outside dinning is a good option. The bands on the weekends are a wonderful added feature.
