We originally went here due to their longer hours than most places around and the food was great. They have a small menu but it has a wide array of cultural choices for everyone. Simple sandwiches to steak to Sushi (Tuesdays special). You must try the frat fries.

Went for breakfast and we could tell that they were trying to diverge from a traditional breakfast menu. The restaurant itself is bright and open air with a nice view of the downtown but the food was just average. An odd note was when the waitress took my coffee order and I asked for milk it was like I had... More

Daughter and I stopped here for a quick dinner before a concert. I hadn't been there in years. Dining room is very pleasant and airy. Lots of seating outside, much of it at rivers edge.

We started out our bachelorette weekend here, and the food was great. They have a nice outdoor area and reasonable prices. Very fun!

Great restaurant, close to downtown, easy to get to. Not a huge menu, but really good. Fish tacos are great, and probably healthy. Good beer selection, and on the boardwalk of the Boardman. Wait staff was helpful in recommending wheres and hows. Hope to get back.

We had dinner during the film festival. Decided to split some small plates which turned out well for us . The four selections of beef skewers,calamari, crab rangoons, and pot stickers were all delicious and combined with the salads we ordered was plenty of food for two people. The restaurant which is a little off the main drag of Front... More

Randomly found this place while visiting. The atmosphere was quite lovely when we walked in, very open space. The staff was attentive and friendly. The beverages were good, the kids found something to eat and my husband and I enjoyed our meals a lot. Nice selection of everything. Would for sure come back next time we are in town. Thanks!

Burger was juicy, shrimp quesadilla was delicious, and spicy tuna was great! Service was quick also, sat outside by the river for a relaxing lunch. No complaints, great place for lunch!

Thank John G
