We decided to go to the Wheelhouse for supper on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and pleased that we did. Staff were great, menu nicely varied, decor nice, and both food and service was wonderful. My wife is a Vegetarian and they customized a dish for her. I had a Bison Shepards pie that was delicious, well presented, and... More

When we want a nice meal in a relaxed atmosphere with good service, we go to the Wheelhouse. The menu is interesting and includes as many local food items as possible. Most of the food is very good but it is not inexpensive. It's worth it if you want to eat good food in a nice, relaxed ambiance and plan... More

In addition it was a short walk from our hotel. Although we were a bit early, we were warmly greeted and was given a table close to the window so we could... More

Patio nice but only when it is sunny, we started there and it grew uncomfortable. There were to many tempting things on the menu, I selected Bison Sheppard's pie and could only eat half. The caesar... More

A great venue by the river and a meal enjoyed by all. The owner/host was very gracious but the bill was a bit expensive and more than we planned. Prompt and very courteous service which added to the evening.

We ordered our dinners and beer soon after we arrived. An hour later, having consumed the beer, we finally flagged down our server. She stated she had no idea when dinner would be coming out, there was a table of eight that had been seated immediately before us, and they had not even received their salad. We asked for the...

We arrived without reservation and they were able to accommodate us after a short wait. The food was quite tasty my son ordered from the children's menu and had the elk pasta without elk. He enjoyed... More

the service was friendly and done well. the food was ok, but the prices where out of this world. had better for less. it is worth a try if you are single or a couple. you can not try it often because of the prices. but it was nice to sit there and watch the river go by.
