We were told there were no specials, " just order from the menu"... But when we tried to order they were out of selected items. Other selections were made ... Do not order the salmon cake! And you had best ask if they have ketchup if you order anything that might need it, as the fact that they are out... More

What a romantic experience! We sat at a table only for two on the balcony where we sipped cocktails and enjoyed a magnificent view! I ordered the ratatouille and was very pleased! The service was extremely friendly and the experience was wonderful!

The absolute worst service I have ever experienced. Took about 15 minutes for our waitress to even come over, then after ordering it took a good hour to receive the cold, non-appetizing food. Many people around us were walking out and complaining as well. I ordered onion soup and it was served with a cold piece of cheese that was... More

Interior needs updating - dark and dingy. The whole restaurant looks in need of a deep clean. Food was okay. They were out of some items, including drinks. Service and prices were fine.

Great value and quantity for the price. Scenic location on the river walk. We shared appetizers and the kids got sandwiches. Gotta try the crap dip!!!

The food was good, but the portion size was a little small. My biggest qualm was that it took 20 minutes to order upon being seated. The waitress in our section did not even glance in our direction yet alone say she will be right with us. We were at the table which shared a booth back with a table... More

Service was great. I had the fish and chips which was pretty good. My friend had a huge burger that looked delicious. Fried mushroom batter needed some work. Really good ice cold sweet tea. Great views.

I know the challenges associated with keeping an old place looking old and original, but clean. This place is not for everyone. If you are a OCDD Obsessive Compulsive Decor Disorder, then stay away. (And by the way DON'T go to India !) Balcony Dining is not for everyone either. But these seemed very well cared for, and the closing... More
