Stopped in for lunch, had a couple of grilled chicken salads with Kraft dressing. Iceberg lettuce. Nothing remarkable. Except for the view, which was of the Mississippi River, and very nice.

Stopped here after touring the town. The building is located right along the Mississippi River. We sat at a booth and watched all the boats on the water. Husband loves their chili.
