I saw that they have a burger with a peach habanero sauce, I asked for a side of the sauce to put on my chops. GLORIOUS flames on my palate (in a good way). Patio is second... More

I met my relatives for an evening dinner on Thursday August 18, 2016. I ordered the lobster mac and cheese. It was very good. Probably the best mac and cheese I have ever had. Parking was a challenge, had to park 3 blocks away. Will definitely go back however. Restaurant overlooks the park on the beautiful St. Croix River. Nice... More

The location is beautiful, and the first meal that I had here was superb. The following meals have been good, without the same level of excellence first experienced. In addition, the restaurant acoustics are such that it's quite loud. And as I was going to answer the meal recommendation, I realized that it was a menu item that I ate... More

All the food was very good. Waitress was very pleasant and professional. Sat out on patio, and then went for a walk on the... More

This was my first stop in Hudson for a bite each, and it was certainly a memorable one thanks to the beautiful view from my waterview deck table and the delectable meal. We shared two appetizers: the jerk chicken fondue (with came with chicken, crusty croutons and granny smith apple wedges) and the fried brie (served with a sweet, fruity... More

The decor is very nice and patio tables have a great view of the river. My walnut chicken salad was wonderful as was my hubby's Monterey chicken sandwich. The fries were pretty good. There was nice variety on the menu. Service was very good.

Great view, food and friends. Two of us ordered the rotisserie chicken salad and it was delicious. Another ordered the healthy bowl with salmon, again it was delicious....also had a beer which was on tap. Beautiful day on the deck, just perfect.
