“way too expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I've been here about 3 times in the last 5 years, only because its my mother's favorite restaurant. I have never been happy with the food quality or prices, because its expensive for the portions you get. My husband ordered the steak last time, it was less than satisfactory for the price. I ordered the fish, it was ok but very greasy. I would expect to see food of this quality at a cheap diner, not a nice restaurant like this. The scenery is very nice, location is great, just wish they had better service and food.

“Water front.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We weren't going to go to this place, but glad we did. Food was excellent. Large menu. Great atmosphere as it is on the waterfront.
The food was excellent. We got waited on right away and it didn't take to long to get the food. We enjoyed the experience.

“supper for my father's birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

had a wonderful supper with a beautiful view of the bridge and the slaw and the St Marys River. The food was excellent and so is the service. And if you go you must try the apple caramel crisp kind of dessert yummy!

“Lovely river view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

A variety of dishes available and the service was good. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. Mine was tasty but, in my opinion, overpriced. The wine selection could use improvement. The restaurant has a lovely view of the St. Mary's River.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We arrived with a party of 6 about 15 minutes to close time and that did not bother the restaurant; they accomodated us, so we went back the next night since the food was so great. Nice, home cooked meals. Really good and good value too.
