We asked our waitress for recommendations and she gave us two excellent choices. Other diners were friendly and the view of the river's activities is very nice. There is free parking in a parking garage

We like staying at the Doubletree whenever there are concerts in town. If the River Watch is open we always stop in for a bite. We love to look out at the river and watch the boats go by. Very friendly staff, good food, great...More
