“Beautiful Facility, great prices but so so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We recently ate here while visiting Portland. Being from out of town we had a hard time finding the place. The facility & location are beautiful. The prices are great. They even have a great kids reading program if you check out their website. You get a lot of bang for you buck here. You get a lot of food at a great price. The salad & bread were great but my main dish had to much onion & garlic in it for my taste. My husband didn't care for his either. The kids loved the mac & cheese though.

Service was a bit slow but we did catch them at a shift change so that may be why.

Great value though & a fun family outing.

“Christmas Ships”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

They have great food, great prices and an excellent atmosphere. At Christmas time, the parade of boats comes right by the restaurant down the river. I got married here, and it was a great day! Thanks Gary :)

“Nice place to visit but I don't usually eat there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The staff always work very hard at making everyone happy and seeing that it is an enjoyable experience but the sauce has to deep of a tomato paste taste for me, I prefer a tomato sauce richness
