“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

I've tried this restaurant three times and every time I've gotten ill after wards. The service is terrific, the atmosphere great, the food not so great.

“pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Food and service here was pretty good--definitely casual, nice to sit outside and eat. Had fish and a salad,fish was fine, salad had good blue cheese dressing--clearly homemade. Right at the river.

“Good "hole in the wall" type-place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2010

My husband and I went here with another couple because we were looking for somewhere new to eat in the area. We liked that it was on the river, except it was raining so we couldn't eat outside on the patio. Food and drinks are really reasonably priced. And you can order anything from sandwiches and burgers to steak seafood and pasta. It gets louder and turns into a bar as it gets later, but the service was good we had a good time!

“perfectly priced delicious food for our family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2010

Stopped into the rendezvu on a Wednesday evening. Was very happily surprised when we found out that it was a kids eat free night(seeing as we brought out 4 year old). My husband and I each enjoyed an awesome steak and shrimp dinner, a couple beers a piece and even dessert(plus the little one's dinner) all for under $45 (pre-tip)! That seems like a great place to me. The server was super friendly and quick on everything. We will be back for sure!

“Not what it appears”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2009

If you look at this restaurant's website, and drive past quickly it looks like a nice restaurant with surprisingly inexpensive food. When you go in...you'll find out it's a bar. A bar with pot roast on the menu...and the pot roast, and meatloaf, and fish dishes are not good. It's amateur hour in the kitchen, I think. The bar food selections, however...(patty melt, potato skins, etc.) are delicious. I don't know what this place is trying to be, but it's a bar and bars are great, but don't plan to take your parents there for a nice dinner like we did. We even called and made a reservation. It was totally unnecessary, as it turned out.
