“Nice view but average on the whole”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went with friends for an early supper and found the place to be nice out on the patio. Good river view and good food. Nothing great but very adequate. Waitress was a little shaky and forgot things but after reminding she would hustle them back to us. Place started to get crowded outside fast between the boat traffic and street traffic. Golf cart shuttle was a plus for some of our group but its just a short walk from the parking garage. Be sure to get your ticket validated by the hostess !

“Great River View”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We visited early on a recent Friday evening. Parking was easy in a nearby garage(bring your ticket and get it validated at the restaurant). We ( party of 12) were seated at a long table near the rear of the Tiki bar. We were able to view the river up close and personal(not for those who might get seasick). The bar area does move with the waves in the river. Our service was prompt and friendly. The menu had plenty of choices with the sandwich baskets the most popular with our crowd. Everything was delicious. Our waitress made sure our drinks were filled and our needs met. There was a stage at the other side of the bar for evening entertainment. This is a great place to get together with friends and just relax and enjoy the food, drink, and river activity. Afterward, take a walk along the river on the paved trail. If you need assistance getting down to the restaurant, call and they will send someone with a golf cart to take you down.

“Premium view, fine dining”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I was privileged to eat here a couple of days ago. The restaurant is situated on what seemed to be a barge, right on the Ohio River. The view was great, the meal even better. The staff and service are excellent. I enjoyed the haddock dinner. There is free parking in a garage, just inside the flood wall (get your parking ticket validated). The dining area is outside but covered. The bar is inside the building (still on the "boat"). The menu consists of sea food, some pork and hamburger sandwiches. I definitely want to return!!

“nice fun place”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The river experience is what makes the place. Food is normal pub fare. Often times - has live entertainment and daily drink specials . A little bit of a walk to get to it --- but they may have shuttle transport . A decent value for the experience and atmosphere .
