What a great outdoor location for a sunny day. We enjoyed a long Sunday Brunch of six friends and we will be back. The food was very good with a wide variety. Everyone had something different on the menu and everyone liked their choice. The only negative was some amateurish service but that was only a few minor omissions like... More

Very pleasant, sat outside on the River it was hot but the cool and refreshing drinks helped a lot. We had a great server who was very pleasant, helpful and patient. We enjoyed three specially priced appetizers my favorite the Crabby Dip which I had to share, I could have eaten this as a meal I liked it so much.... More

Went for fish on a Friday night at around 730PM. Place was very crowded. We'd been looking forward to dining outside but unfortunately it had rained and everything was wet. So we stayed indoors and enjoyed the river view. Three of us had baked cod which was delicious. Came with mixed vegetables. One person had fried cod; the portion was... More

For a busy Sunday afternoon we had good service and really good food. Sliders, crab dip, sweet/sour chicken all very good. Lots of room for boats to dock, easy access to the restaurant's outdoor patio. Will definately be back.

We went here for a team celebration on a Wednesday. Food was extremely good and on a nice sunny day the view across the water was great. They have bean toss outside and boat access.

Stopped by this restaurant on a Sunday and had a drink outside while watching the boaters and kayakers. My wife and I decided to stay and eat. Was seated in a booth and waited about 10 minutes without any service, despite the restaurant having few tables in use. Decided to get up and leave when one server even passed by... More

I had the wild mushroom pork loin with potatoes and brussel sprouts. I never eat brussel sprouts. It was a great meal. I travel a lot during the summer and mostly live on bar food. Sometimes I want a good meal, this was one. Will always stop here when in town. Don't claim to be a food critic but I... More
