Know that you need to park across the street. This is a nice place from enjoy nice weather and watch boaters along the river. Sitting inside is a bit too loud for normal conversation, the outside patio is definitely where you want to be.

Whether you eat inside or out, you have a great view. My favorite is the patio that seat almost up the the edge of the piers. My only complaint is that the music is way too loud and hard rock/hip-hoppy at lunch. The crowd is much older then, and the music should be taylored to that. Leave the loud electronica dance tunes for the evenings when the crown is young. However, we did make a comment to our server who had it turned down..just a touch lower was all that was needed, but I have a feeling that we weren't the only ones who mentioned it.
The food has been terrific everytime I've gone...salads are fresh and plentiful, Jessica's Chicken and Avocado sandwich on your choice of bread is one of my favorites, and you just can't do any better than their Pot Roast!!! Just like Mom used to make - or in my case - Dad! We've never felt rushed for quick turn-over, but have been left alone (with the occasional checking to see if we needed more beverage - refills free on pop, iced tea and lemonade) to chat after finishing our meal. Going again tomorrow for lunch as a matter of fact!!!

Great place for a nice meal if you are taking a cruise down the Fox River or just happen to be in the area. Love the BBQ pork sandwich and the salads. My husband had the Friday night fish fry the last time we were there. He said it was good but the portion was small. You can eat under umbrellas on the patio or inside overlooking the river. Beautiful in the evening. Wait staff is knowledgable and friendly. Family friendly but usually filled with adults.

Mahi mahi sandwich good if they arent out of it....which is often. RIbs good, coconut shrimp are very good....friendly place good wait staff. It is annoying that you cannot take out food, when my husband was home from the hospital and wanted their ribs, they refused to let me take out dinner! Not many good choices in McHenry, this place is decent.
