This bar is located on a bridge downtown with excellent views of the river. The bar has a good selection of local beers and is usually crowded with locals.

The kitchen was down to snacks, but the bar had great atmosphere. The window seats looked right out over the river, and I do me OVER the river. Obviously a place for locals to gather as well.

I visited this place 30 years ago. Then, last week (6/6/21) visited it again and it was the same dirty, dumpy experience as then. I walked out. It is full of people who should wear a mask no matter where they go. Just buy a...Bud and drink it in your car. It will be a better experience.More

It might not look like a great pub but it truly is. The drinks are very reasonable and they make a great Irish coffee and Spanish coffee. The staff are very nice and attentive. The basic bar food is pretty good too.

It's not one of the tourist traps - just a nice place to have a drink and a snack. It's also situated on the river, (hence the name) so it's great to look outside. We'll be back!
