The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. We went here one night for a light dinner, and it was perfect for that. The view of the river was quite nice and everything we ordered to eat was delicious.

Great place to meet friends for drinks, appetizers, and watching the sunset over the Mississippi River. It's not a large place which makes it more intimate and the views of the River are spectacular.

Our party of three enjoyed an early dinner before attending the local Orpheum Theater. Our food was great, but on this particular evening, with only a dozen patrons, the service was very slow. We had to end our meal abruptly so we didn’t miss the...More

Why get in the car and go somewhere else when you have such great option at the Inn? The Terrace doesn't require reservations. The night we were there was unusually warm for the fall and they started with the windows all open until a breeze...More
