We have eaten here many times and the seafood is some of the best Central Texas has to offer. The Shrimp Cocktail (not on the menu) and Seafood Gumbo are out of this world. All the fried platters are very good as well. Problem is .... if your in he mood to enjoy the great outdoor deck overlooking the Brazos River while you eat your meal, prepare yourself and the kids to inhale a lot of second hand cigarette smoke. If not for the smoking poilcy, we would consider this restaurant a solid 5.

The food was excellent and the wait staff was great. The scenery was beautiful as we sat there enjoying watching the people paddle board down the Bosque River. The location was very easy to find even with all the construction going on at the freeway. Would definitely recommend it to friends.

We stopped by the Waco Tourism Bur. and they recommended this restuaruant. I am glad they did. The river front added the view but the food was outstanding. Quality food at good prices. The entire family liked the food. Definately a place to go.

We visited here on our way home from vacationing in San Antonio. It was a late lunch so wait time was minimal. The atmosphere is okay. The river is nice but a lot of construction is going on and the interstate is right next to you. The food was excellent. There is a large variety to choose from. We all had a hard time choosing. I had the Seafood Eggplant Pirogue and it was wonderful. A very large portion. Way too much for one person. My husband had the Shrimp La Grange and it too was very good. My daughter had the fried catfish off the children's menu and it was a very large fillet and also very good. We shared the fried alligator bites and they were great! The prices were very good for the quality and quantity of the good. The service was just par. Not bad but not excellent. I would definitely recommend eating here.

We went tonight and really enjoyed it. We had great service and food. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather. We even got to feed the turtles, ducks, and fish thanks to our great waitress who brought us more bread to feed them. We'll definitely go back.
