The atmosphere is beautiful with the Ohio River in the background. The staff are always cheerfully and efficient. The food and drinks are amazing! On Wednesdays, the Honey Vines play beautiful music at the baby grand piano.

You see all types of dress in there, since it's connected to the casino. The menu and prices are upscale, so business casual is about as casual as I would be willing to go.
