Staff is very welcoming. And the food is great! Especially like the River Rat dipper. A french dip type sandwich... best ever!

We have eaten here many of times and always enjoyed the foods. My wife like the maurice salad as her favorite and I usually go for the chicken or beef dinners. Our last visit suprised us with an upgrade in meal quality. I had the prime rib king cut and was served an excellent plate of potatoes, veggies and a cut of prime rib on a scale of 9 of 10. The wait staff have been there along time and dote on you regularly. The resturant serves many returning guests. Come on over and enjoy.

We tried several items on the menu and none were very flavorful. This is a restaurant that charges $$$, above average for their entrees. Pasta dishes are your best bet.

We had a wonderful dinner last week, from the nice bottle of white wine (not too expensive), appetizers and dinner. The clam chowder was excellent. The potato parmesan crusted cod was amazing. Not to mention that our table of 6 had a nice round table, so we could all talk together. I'll be back!

Pretty fair size menu, drink prices are OK. Not on the River but just across the street.
