We’ve been here twice since they changed names and management and it was just as bad as the old River Jack’s. We only came back because we live close by. Both visits featured inexperienced bartenders who messed up our simple drink orders. Both times a waitress had to step in and fix our drinks. I didn’t know you could mess... More

Hostess was very nice but we had the worst waiter (Mark) ever. Thirty minutes before we got dinner rolls. 45+ minutes for appetizers after reminded him & he asked us what we ordered. Over an hour for food. Took my beer with 1/4 left and didn't ask if i wanted anything else. I've never not left a tip til tonight.... More

We stayed at the hotel and didn't feel like packing up the family to go out. Considering the convenience and price, it was just fine. We liked the food. The pizza was a bit salty, but not bad. The Greek salad was delicious. The beer was cold, the staff friendly, and the music wasn't too loud for our small children.... More

Pleasant surprise. After a long bike ride, it was nice to sit, relax, and just let go. The food was great, the Beer was coldd, and the view was Fantastic. I didn't expect such a nice restaurant at a Best Western.

About as average a meal as a person could get ... restaurant closed, ate in the bar ... only close choice, so here I was ... ONLY reason to eat here is if you're staying at the Motel (which I do NOT recommend - see my other review) and don;t want to drive anywhere.

We ate on the patio that overlooks the river. They also have a fun tiki bar outside, as well as docks if you ride your boat to the restaurant. Try the Cubano sandwich...yum!!

Food was good, probably a bit overpriced. Took an hour to get our food which was apparently due to a rush of people ordering food from a major function.
