The food is very good, the views are excellent, the serving hours are extended with a good bar menu. Dishes are uncomplicated and well prepared. The light, bright modern interior is within and old brick industrial building once used for boat repairs. There is an attractive fireplace seating area with river views. Service is very friendly and helpful. Prices are moderate to moderately expensive. Located along the river walk makes it easy to reach on foot. Astoria Riverwalk Inn and another hotel are quite close by. We particularly liked the "drop in at any time" relaxed atmosphere.

Went for lunch one day and had a difficult time finding where it was located. Maybe more signage?? We sat at the bar and the bartender/waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had the clam and mussel stew which came with bread and my husband had the salami pannini with fries. Had some craft beers also. Our food was wonderful! Would go again if ever in the area. Great view of the river to boot!

This very recently was a working dock for fishing boats, the evidence is still there. And no, I can't say more because I don't want to spend all day on your dumb review. Take what you get
