We ride motorcycles through the area a lot and when we are in the mood for a great sandwich this is the place. The service is awesome. We love this place. Plus you can set outside and listen to the river ,what could be better?

The food here is good for a day trip to the mountains. Good assortment of deli fare with meats and cheese. Cost is not bad as far as other similar eateries.

The food is good. I had a traditional sandwich with soup. But what I really love the most was the river view and the service. They are two sister who run the family business, lovely ladies

I ordered the Club Sub and my boyfriend ordered the Kat's Special Turkey Sandwich. Both of the sandwiches were so fresh and packed full of meat. The bread was also fresh and delicious. We will be back!! The staff is so friendly!
