While we ate dinner, two separate gigantic freighters sailed by just outside the windows. Such entertainment! The fish tacos and local beers were quite good, too. It is a reasonably casual place, despite being connected to a nice hotel. You can enter from the river...More

Suzanne from our bed and breakfast recommended us to this restaurant. We were starving so ordered an appetizer and dinner! Well the appetizer came and was gigantic! And so good. Our dinners were excellent and the view of a freighter going by was wonderful.

Yes, they still have the all you can eat brunch. You can walk in, but if you don't want to wait I would make a reservation. I don't know if they are doing anything special for Easter--you'd have to call. You can pull up... More
