We had a great lunch here before going on the river tour. The onion rings are worth coming back for all by themselves. Hush puppies were tasty without being dry. My patty melt and husband’s catfish sandwich were outstanding.

After a day on the river we always find our way here. Nice place to have a few cocktails and enjoy the evening. Service is good, but the speed of the food from the kitchen can be quite slow at times.

We ate on the outside deck twice during the week. We liked the view of the river and the food was good. The staff was helpful and friendly. This is a low key spot where there seemed to be regular customers
