First, the dining room location is pretty fantastic with a view of the river. There is also the bar area and in the summer the outdoor space. The menu is a combination of casual bar, burger/sandwich, modified English pub and fine dining. There is something for everyone and the prices are varied and affordable and appropriate for each of these genre. That alone is a nice plus. This is not a gastronomic place but the chef does try to inject interesting nuances like specialty sauces, truffle here and Siracha there. There is good fish and venison. Lamb is used for the shepherd pie and Nueske bacon in a few places. Dining is about an overall total experience and on that basis, I gave it a "four star". They also do corkage for brought in wine, a real plus if you have something special you would like to bring. Call ahead to make sure.
