Followed by a mixed salad with candied pecans, strawberries, mandarin, and shaved parmesan. Excellent, fresh, and light on the dressing. Main course was steak with vegetables. Steak cooked medium rare and... More

We were greeted upon arrival, once seated, the 6:00pm dinner service began. You will have an hour and a half experience of well prepared food, a view of the... More

We go here often and it is a quiet place with excellent food. It is a perfect retreat. Sit on the bank of the river and watch nature.

We stayed in Room #1 and it was comfortable overlooking backyard area. Dinner was superb with great choices and service was great. They even made a fruit plate for my husband in place of... More
