“Great comeback - new and improved”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Recently took a Sunday motorcycle ride out and enjoyed a great lunch and cold beer (just one!) on their new deck overlooking the river. Food and service were very good and price reasonable. Will def return.

“Great digs/menu & noise need work”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Been there several times. We live nearby. Great reconstruct from flood, deck area and fire pit streamside are fabulous. Will be better summer as grass comes in. Campy decor inside is cool & very appropriate for area. Acoustics inside are bad when at all full...MUST dampen. Food is rather burger basket... My last 2meals and an appetizer came smothered in a very salty chili pepper powder. Think again. Also, a very easy healthier menu tweak is to OFFER BAKED SWEET POTATOES in addition to the pervasive mashed on most dinners. Several have concurred. Thanks!

“Depends on what you order !”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were with a group of 8 adults and children. The Haddock eaters raved. On the other side of the table we experienced very limp soggy curly fries that lost their curl. The hamburgers and grilled cheese were okay but nothing to write home about. The peanut butter pie was "to die for" but the brownie moose-like concoction was only declared so so by 4 in the group. We will probably return as the deck overlooking a moving stream was picture perfect.

“Beautiful meal in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I went here the other night for the very first time and it was absolutely fabulous. The meals are fantastic and the service is quick and friendly. The setting; however, is what makes this restaurant unique. Williamsport has so much beautiful scenery, and this restaurant certainly takes advantage of it. You can eat a fantastic burger, drink a beer and look out at the mountain and the creek. I highly recommend this place and will probably make a weekly journey.

“Newer and Better”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Sometimes tragedy is a blessing. The new restaurant built after the flood of 2011 is such an improvement over the old place. The food is much better also. Our server was very attentive and the food was well prepared and of good quality. We only went to the old Pier 87 once but we see the new one finding a monthly spot on our dining out rotation.
