Great location on Black River. Good views on top deck, but also downstairs. Unfortunately, boat is really worn and severely needs updating. Furthermore, menus were sticky, table centers are recycled 6 pack boxes (effective, but tacky and cheap). Gets a lot of traffic, so service can be slow. Must be a logistical nightmare to manage (small kitchen, stairs, traffic areas only big enough for one person). Our food met expectations, but a bit high in price. I accept it as paying for view.
Like the title, do it for the atmosphere and lower expectations on the rest. Otherwise you may be disappointed.
Service staff was very friendly and accommodating.
I see the Millennium Restaurants runs it now. Their other locations are top notch, so be interesting to see if they clean up the Idler.
