This is our first visit and enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and wine. Brianna is the best! She made our day. Will surely come back and would like to have dinner sometime.

This was our first time dining here. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews online. Atmosphere was great. Our waitress Morgan was even better. Definitely eat here again.

Had a nice lunch here. Can get busy but the female wait staff is very caring and on task. Pasty here was OK - too heavy on the rutabaga and the dough was way too thick. Good whitefish taco. Enjoy local microbrews!

I had a delicious dinner salad with cheesy potato soup and hubby had a chicken penne pasta dinner with artichoke hearts, spinach and mushrooms. Both very tasty and large portions. Seats by the window to watch the activity at the locks was a bonus.

We went here because of the rave reviews about the location and food. We were not disappointed. But I want to point out the service.

You walk into the restaurant, seeing multiple beautiful view tables for two, perfect for your anniversary vacation... only to be told they are reserved. They will continue to be empty through your whole visit. "But, we do have a table opening up just around... More

I had the fish tacos made with locally caught white fish. It was made with thin grilled flat bread and a tasty house made coleslaw. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the cheeseburger and fries he...

We went here based on reviews. While the food was ok, it was very overpriced for the size of our servings. They brought out my tiny chicken sandwich and forgot to put on the chicken. Not the cleanest. Server was pleasant.

Thank Cheriinmi
