Stopped here for lunch after a few days in the park. Friendly unpretentious service, great variety on the menu. We stopped in winter and the river was pumping alongside the deck. Had delicious soup and sweet potato fries were yum. Would love to come back and have a beer on the decking in summer.

My husband's friends took him to this restaurant a few weeks ago and he LOVED it. So for an early Valentine's Day, we took a 2 1/2 hour motorcycle ride to have lunch. While the view of the river was fantastic (it was especially high and fast), I have to hope that they were just having an off day, because... More

Stop in for a beer and some local flavor! We did not eat but this place was recommended a couple times. It does have an excellent spot on the RIVER, very cool. The clientele was local and the beer was cold and view is fabulous!

Surprisingly good food and cocktails at this restaurant. The Asian crispy chicken salad was delicious, although the pizza dough could use a bit more olive oil, the dough was crispy and well formed and the toppings were good. The cocktails were great - they make their own ginger ale and have great knowledge of cocktails. Good service too! On rivers... More

Not from the area but it was recommended by some locals--this is definitely a place where locals gather and we visited for Taco Tuesday--great price for the amount of food. Great value.

This place is a great local hangout. More of a bar atmosphere with pool tables, etc. However, it has lots of seating, indoors and out and the food is excellent. They welcome dogs--even have a separate entrance for them--that doubles as a wheelchair accessible entrance.

I have to admit that from the outside and just inside the door can be a little intimidating, the pool table is just to your left and the bar in right in front of you, but just keep walking and you will be on a wonderful patio overlooking the river. Ate there on a Sunday morning, they opened at 11:00... More

If you are looking for a really nice view, this is the place. Ask for a table on the patio next to the railing overlooking the river. But know that the food and service are not as the same level as the view. They are poor to lackluster. We watched as several other people ordered their food, ate, and left... More

Taco Tuesday is a hit! $2 bean or $2.50 beef or chicken. What more can you say? Very friendly staff overlooking a gorgeous stream/ river depending on the time of year you go.

We had dinner here and it was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. On,y down side was the bloke on the table at the side of us who decided to cut his finger nails during courses, fortunately we were ready to leave. I hope the man who was drinking double vodka and oranges reads this... More
