Great location, wonderful views, nice staff, good ambiance, enjoyed their house beers especially the pale ale and IPA - the food though - meh, not so much. Arrived cold, poorly executed (I didn't complain) - very average fare.

We’ve patronized this location since it opened in the early 1990’s. We always stopped in with the running club before the Jacksonville River Run, or after Jaguars games. We were even here for the Seinfeld finale party in 1998. We’ve always loved this place. Imagine...More
