“Great place for relaxing on the river!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

I'm so glad that a friend recommended this place. I had no idea it could be so pretty and relaxing on the river! This is obviously the slow season as there weren't too many people there. Service was excellent (it was the owner) and we had a great evening. The food is mostly fried, but that wasn't an issue for me. I knew to expect that. It was just really nice being able to relax out there with beer and friends. It's a nice setup they have. It's lush and tropical and just makes you want to stay!

“Service left something to be desired”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Visiting my dad in Mission and he took us here because they have a Saturday German food special. The view was good and the menu was varied enough to handle three kids and four adults. The German lunch special was very good: bratwurst, sauerkraut, cabbage roll and German style potato salad. It was funny to come all the way to the border and get German food.

Good food barely made up for the terrible service though. Our waitress was less the friendly, ignored our table twice and then as she started taking our order she walked away and took an order from another table. Two of the kids and my wife ordered burgers and they arrived without fries, which we found out had to be ordered separately. The bill was left at the table before the food even arrived and we were never asked if our drinks needed refills. My parents said they have always had issues with this particular girl but said everyone else is great.

“Great Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches and Fish Fridays”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

A must go to Casual restaurant in Mission/McAllen on the Rio Grande. Gigantic pork tenderloin sandwiches. Fridays are Fish Specials with tasty fried cod, catfish, shrimp combos to be had. Dine on picnic tables on the deck or inside. Live Music some days. warning - Almost everything on the menu is FRIED. Except the salads - lol.
