We stopped by for a drink and my guy had boneless wings. I was not hungry so i had iced tea which was good. We sat on the deck overlooking the river. This had a nice atmosphere worth pretty ivy growing on the wall. A nice place!

The food is excellent, but the service is terribly slow. Don't care for the appearance of some of the waiters.

Stopped here for food and drinks while staying in Manistee. Stellar location and river side deck ruined by, literally, the worst staff I've experienced in my entire life. Nothing could have prepared me for the stupid look I received from one of the snotty, clueless waitstaff when begging for a basket of rolls I asked for after waiting 1.5hrs for... More

Good beer choices. Server was friendly and good at her job. We had a delicious fire roasted vegetable Wrap with tortilla chips and salsa. We enjoyed that very much. They could pipe some music out there for a little atmosphere. There were kids on the dock just being kids but a little music would of covered their voices.

River Street Station is a good place to go for Drinks and food. It is not child friendly. It resembles an old rail station and is an historic building. You can eat outside however, it's a deck on the channel more than a view. On a nice day it is nicer that sitting inside with the regulars. This is a... More

The food is quite good and the staff is quite helpful with suggestions. The view from the terrace at the back leading to the canal is very impressive. Definitely worth a visit for a relaxed time after a good day on the trails.

We needed someplace that serves late night food and they were all we could find. They graciously let us order food right at the time they stop serving. Others came in 15 minutes later and were also served. They have a good selection of sandwiches and bar food. The bartender was very friendly and attentive.
