The choice in the menu was great. The service was about perfect: friendly, accurate, quick and helpful. The choice of wine was very good. The lobster was prepared as it should be. The taste was fresh, as lobster should be. It was a fabulous meal.

After a sad, slow decline since we first started going here 8 years ago, this place has really turned the quality back up! We had a great visit, from the perfect waiter to the fantastic prime rib. The Cedars is back as somewhere you'd want to take your out of town guests, even if the spectacular view wasn't part of... More

Looking for a romantic anniversary dinner and although we'd been disappointed by Cedars before, we thought we'd give it another try. Nope. We won't make that mistake again. The location is excellent, the ambiance wonderful and our service was fine. It's the food! The salad bar was horrible. Brown lettuce, simple toppings and if I'm paying $36 for a plate,... More

Had dinner this weekend at Cedars, our party of five sat outside and the ambience was very enjoyable. All the staff we had contact with were very friendly and professional. Food was good. We would probably dine here again, so my following remarks are not made in anger, mostly an observation. While serving our pre-dinner cocktails our server spilled a... More

We went with friends and everyone had a pretty good experience. The location is great as it is along the river. The food was average but a bit pricey. All in all not a bad experience. The service was good and they have a nice salad bar. I would go again

We went here for supper. The view of the river is wonderful. I had fish, and was disappointed. It was mushy. The salad bar and desserts were good. It is a bit high priced for what you get. They even charged for a sample of wine. I thought that was unusual. Probably wouldn't go back.

I stopped in for drinks with some friends and the wait staff was very helpful and attentive; in sharp contrast to my two previous visits. When I paid my bill, they brought back the receipts for signature, but not my card. After spending 10-15 minutes looking for it with flashlights on the deck and inside, they finally found it. It...

We were visiting the area from Scottsdale, AZ and decided to try Cedars on the River. We were seated outside and had a great view! The salad bar is very so-so; however, the clam chowder was very good. My husband chose the calamari special and it was excellent!! I had the seafood primavera which was good but a little lacking...
