“Fabulous food in a cool setting”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Six of us enjoyed the perch, ribs, citrus chicken, salmon and cherry chicken salad. Everything was delicious, and the recently renovated restaurant interior was beautiful. We ate on the deck overlooking the water and listened to their live music. The service was prompt and friendly. We will definitely be back!

“5 star fun atmosphere with 3 star food.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We liked the place al lot. You can dine in or outside. Great atmosphere overlooking the water. Music on the deck. A very fun place but the food was just okay which we could deal with because we enjoyed our experience. My friend ordered a burger and onion rings which he said looked like prefrozen. I had walleye which was good. The wine prices and pour were very good although the waiter wanted to pour my wine from inside into a plastic cup when we moved outside which I refused. They were serving bottled Coronas on he deck so I was not about to have a $9 glass of wine in a plastic cup.

We will be back.

“Good for boaters (dock access) and pretty view”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The beer selection was good and the food was fine at our lunch. It is nice to be on the water, next to the inlet, even though the main road is nearby. We ate outside and had a good visit.

Service was a little slow, but perhaps due to the long walk between table and kitchen and the fact that a couple of large groups arrived around the time we did.

The building is new and nice.

“Reopened”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

After a long delay they have rebuilt and reopened the Riverwalk. They have an all new menu to go with the new building.

The food on the deck at lunch was good. My wife had the Riverburger and I had the Maryland crab burger. Both were large and come with Great Lakes chips.

The only down side is the drink prices, $6.50 for a plastic cup of draft beer is a bit over the top.
