Great spot to eat and right by the river. We did sit in side because it was a bit chilly but they do have heaters on the deck. Really tasty food.

Really good food! Probably best burger I have ever had. The atmosphere is simply wonderful. The service is rather slow but in their defense they seemed to be moving as fast as they could
