“Great food! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We went here looking for a nice lunch and we're glad we did. Sandwich tasted amazing. After reading the desert menu we decided to come back later that evening and get desert. The best thing we did in Astoria period. The habenero cheese cake was to die for. Will go back every time we go through Astoria.

“Nice Surprise in Astoria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Recommended by our hotel which was nearby. Nice menu, good service and well prepared dishes. We had soups, salads and seafood and were very pleased with everything. Reasonably priced considering the quality, service and atmosphere. Much more than we expected.

“Great View, Large GF Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

First of all, if gluten free is your thing, this place has tons of selection. They even had gluten free fish and chips! We had a large party (5 adults, 6 kids) for lunch and we were able to get in right away. The kids menu portions were very large, but pricey (8.50 for a hamburger and fries). Everyone really enjoyed their food and the atmosphere was great. I can imagine it would be even better at dinner time sitting right on the water. We all had a great experience. The food was more expensive then I had expected to pay for lunch that day, but if you go into it expecting to spend a little more then normal at lunch time, then sticker shock of your final ticket wont sneak up on you and you can just enjoy the experience for what it is, which is lovely.

“The view is the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We've tasted better seafood...just ok. If you're searching for gluten free, this is your place. We're not and it would be great to have some regular menu choices. The staff was nice and the view of the bridge is the best.
