Another Knoxville landmark. Great location on the river/lake. Heard the food is good, but I haven't tried it.

“Very nice place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

The service is always good. The food is delicious. Sometime I get my drinks at the bar in order to take advantage of their Happy Hour specials. However, the food is always delicious.
