My wife's favorite dish is the twisted mac and cheese and I havent found a meal I didnt like. The prices are fair and they have a full bar. I reccomend for date night or if you need to have a business function.

Eating here allows a nice river view with river traffic going by. The food was very good with larger portions. The Lake Superior White Fish was well done, and the salmon was quite good. The veggies were properly cooked and the salads were nice.

Lots of fried appetizers and entrees. Not an enormous selection of foods, very few healthy options. Limited wine selection by the glass. Lovely view, welcoming staff

I'm not sure. They will probably have it posted on their website or give them a call.
