“Really enjoyable dining experience!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We went for brunch on a Sunday. We had a reservation but came in 15 minutes early. We were seated immediately. While we weren't seated at a window, the large windows surrounding us gave a nice view of the fall colors. Our server, Ally, came over promptly. Ally, was friendly, attentive, professional and efficient, easily one of the best servers we have had in recent memory. We had originally planned to have the all-you-can-eat family-style breakfast, but decided that would be too much food, so we asked for a suggestion. Ally recommended a breakfast flatbread that was absolutely outstanding. Overall, the food was terrific, service was awesome, and prices fair for the quality, portion and taste. They also have a Ms Pac-Man machine!

“Good food, great location and views”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

This restaurant is a perfectly fine place that is family-friendly and accomodates large groups well. Service is always the best - can't say that about every place I've been to. Love the variety on their menu. Could not decide what to order - so our table tried several dishes. Where else can you order a really great lobster/grilled cheese sandwich with tomato-basil soup? I found it here and it was great. It was perfect for a rainy Saturday. Hubby ordered a barbeque sandwich - huge. Great flavor - coffee delicious. It's really all I ask in a restaurant.

“Great patio seating!”

This restaurant has an amazing view of the river. There is a large outdoor deck. The food is very good. Perfect on a summer afternoon.

“Amazing View...”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We try and make this a must during the summer months. The view is gorgeous from the patio, the place always busy, the food is very good & portion sizes are large.

My only complaint is the service is very inexperienced during the summer months. While the service is friendly, items ordered have been forgotten on multiple occasions & the staff is hard to track down.

“"Must do" restaurant in Hudson!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Met the girls at this restaurant. They had eaten here before, but since I no longer live in the area, it was my first time. We needed to meet early as we all drove at least an hour to get there. Great location, right above the St. Croix River! We opted to sit outside as it was a wonderful, cool, yet sunny evening in August (a rarity!) I tried the Basil/Cucumber Martini's. Yummy! Better than the kinky martini. The cucumber martini's were light and refreshing....not very strong at all. I had the raspberry chicken salad, and the others had different salads. Everyone was pleased with the food. The Service was immpecable...Sacsha (i hope i spelled that correctly) was very attentive, bright, smiley and it really seemed like she liked her job!! Wonderful outside patio. I didn't see if there was a different menu for inside or not....Try this restaurant for fun, relaxing time!
