the server could not have been better; he was very attentive, even bringing us water without our asking for it; but the margarita was crazy sweet. yuck.

Very poor service. Took 10+ minutes to get our coffee and Mimos. our eggs were tasteless. Never did bring our fruit that went with our breakfast. Asked twice and was told they would bring once cut up.

The food is pretty good. The staff might be a little tired after the weekend and service might be a little slow.

Burgers were good as were the drinks and the service was quite excellent. If you are not into dining this would be a good place to sit by the river, people watch and eat cheap.

We made this our last breakfast stop, and were not disappointed. Sitting along the river walk enjoying fresh fruit, eggs to order, great smoked bacon with some potatoes and gravy made leaving the city tough. If your looking a nice place to relax and enjoy the morning then this is the place to go. We shall return......

Tiffany, our server, was great. The ambiance was good with several tiers and windows that allowed for a good view of the Riverwalk. Our main concern is that our food was below average. The burger wasn't tasty, and the sweet potato fries were soggy. This was one of the few times where we went for a 4 star rated restaurant... More
