Their back patio overlooks the river and it’s beautiful on warm sunny afternoons. I highly recommend grabbing a drink and sitting outside! They have some creative cocktails and a solid wine list. The food is fantastic with a small menu but great variety. Can’t recommend...More

If you are Bing Crosby fan and love looking out over the River then it is worth the drive. Food regularly great albeit a bit pricey.

It's worth the drive. Ambience is warm, great view of the Russian River, great patio dining weather permitting, friendly and appropriate staff, personable owner, and great food. What's not to like? Can't wait until our next opportunity to partake!

Easy walk from the Highland Del. Ate dinner in the bar and found it very comfortable. Waiter and bartender were friendly and pleasant. Attention to details, refilling water glasses was the only fault. Pricey but good food. Stayed for an after dinner cocktail.
