This restaurant is currently closed however trip advisor shows that they are open, their website shows they are open and the website even allows you to make dinner reservations. Amazingly when we arrive and find out it's closed until April. Update your website!

The Waterfront has a pretty setting, we were seated outdoors right next to the creek. The hostess and our server, I think her name was Brittany, were friendly and focused. We had the trout, the portion was just right, we didn't feel like we over...More
