Great view overlooking the river. The food has always been good. They have a “salad” bar but it’s mostly dressing and sauce based dishes (potato salad, etc).

We stopped at the River View Restaurant and we were glad we did. The food wasn't gourmet but it was good. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. The view of the locks on the Ohio River were interesting.

Nice river view. The people working there are nice. The food opfrom the buffet, for dinner, was over cooked, stale, dry, and pretty awful. Maybe okay for an iced tea, it nit much else, except the view.

This place has a million dollar view. The food and service was disappointing. The fried chicken was greasy and not good at all. The chopped steak was ok but think it might have had soybean in it. To top it off instant mashed potatoes.
