Just went to this restaurant last night while on vacation after visiting their website. I expected more. Where was the fresh fish that is flown in daily? The fish on the menu was catfish, salmon, walleye and one other. Lots of fried stuff on the menu. The food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. I expected better. We had walleye and haddock with the gator appetizer. Mediocre. The service is excellent and I liked sitting outside after sinner having a drink and listening to music. Prices are ok.

This place has great service, super atmosphere & beautiful views of the Mississippi River. If traveling by boat you can easily dock on the large deck and eat here. Large deck for outdoor dining. Waitress was FANTASTIC and fast service. Lots of choices on the Lunch menu, too.

This restaurant is beautifully designed and decorated inside and out. There's a small deck for those who would like to dine on the water, but plenty of space inside for those who prefer the air conditioning. Their complete menu offers meats, fish and other seafood, pasta dishes and chicken. Try it all!

Menu has changed since we were last here so can't comment on the food. However, they do have music outside sometimes on weekends, and it's an interesting place to go...right on the Mississippi. Great specialty drinks for just sipping while you sit outside in the sunshine.
