“Enjoyed our dinner.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were politely greeted by the waitress and given enough time to review the menu. The wait for our food was slightly longer that expected but both dishes were piping hot and obviously cooked to order.

My wife's fish platter with veggies and potato was too much for her to finish. My burger was huge and was cooked to a perfect medium and the thin crispy onions were a nice touch. The homemade Cole slaw was right on. I helped wife finish her meal but could hardly finish my fries. Had no room for desert or coffee.

I am happy to recommend this restaurant but be advised that the prices are in line with the quality and the amount food you recieve (in my opinion) - this is not an in expensive restaurant.

“Average dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

We had dinner here on the day after Christmas. The restaurant was very quiet and we expected to have above average service seeing that we were the only patrons a that time. This was not to be as the waitress was very offish when taking our order. The meal was one that I would rather forget as the fries were most certainly not freshly made and seemed to be reheated with no taste. This was not a good start to our culinary expectations of the area.

“Wonderful place to eat & enjoy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

They had a fun menu with the outside area set up like a tiki bar, Jimmy Buffet style! Hence "Cheese Burger in Paradise". Great place to relax and listen to the river behind the patio.

“Slow service, fair food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We came for dinner around 7pm and there were only a few customers in the dining room/bar.

Our table had lots of crumbs and dirt in the crevices of the wood and there were numerous flies all around the dining room that we had to continually swat away...ickkkk

Our server informed us the "salad bar" was included with our meal. The salad bar consisted of a small counter with a bowl of lettuce, some boring looking tomatoes, carrots and some prepackaged dressings. It was not appetizing at all. I would have much preferred to be served a fresh salad on a plate.

After ordering our meals we waited 55 minutes before our entrees finally arrived. We asked the server twice what the delay was and we were told the chef was preparing the other patrons food first and ours would be ready "soon." As mentioned earlier, there were only a handful of customers in the restaurant so the long delay was not justified. She essentially was saying the chef only cooks one meal at a time?? No apology was even offered by the waitress for the excessive wait.

Once the food finally arrived it tasted fair. Not worthy of the prices they charge, especially given the location, rustic atmosphere and lackluster customer service.

Extremely limited menu if you are vegan or vegetarian.

Suggestions to owner: find out what is attracting the flies and get rid of it immediatly, ditch the salad bar and include a nice salad with the entrees, get a website where patrons can view your dinner menu and hours, do a deep cleaning of the restaurant and especially the wood tables, lower the prices, give the waitstaff some customer service refreshing, and most of all find out why the food is taking so long to get to the customer. An hour wait is not acceptable

“Attitude from the owner.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

We were handed a bill that we were unable to read. The person (owner?) who waited on us was very annoyed when we asked her for clarification. Never again.
