Great time sitting outside with a river view. Food and serves were both good. They offer a good kids menu and lots of other choices as well. All food was made to order and served correctly.

Great covered patio style restaurant with a broad menu. Servers are friendly and the food isn't bad. Good way to have a beer and some food while watching the river roll by.
