My father told me the place was good and they had been many times, but this visit he had nothing nice to say. This was my first time but I would not go again . Life is too short for bad food. Good salad bar, but the atmosphere a bit sad, and the four at our table underwhelmed by the... More

A very old-fashioned type of place, but very clean and comfortable, with a little bit of a view of the river from the dining room windows and outdoor tables. All the dishes I've had are very good: The seafood chowder costs extra with the various entree deals, but it is well worth the expense! Very tasty, with big pieces of... More

On the recommendation of our hotel staff, we made this our "special night out" for this trip. The owner greeted us upon entering. The food was excellent. The roaring fireplace made the room very comfy and the Christmas decorations added to the ambiance of this old button factory. The historicity has been well preserved in the dining room and the...

I remember my folks talking about driving in the 50's to this restaurant from Indianapolis just for dinner. I have eaten here several times always good and kind of romantic.

Stopped here for lunch while in Madison & glad we did. Ordered shrimp & grits, which were delicious. The meal came with the salad bar that has the picked watermelon rinds; soup, a seafood chowder, w huge pieces of shrimp & scallops in it; & a side. Tons of food! We ordered the bread pudding & shared as a group.... More

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary...save your money!!! Our sever was rude, the food was horrible. We could not leave fast enough. The coconut shrimp my wife was served was greasy and tasted like old grease, it was inedible. I ordered the stuffed cod and while it was better than the shrimp, I could only eat a... More

Great place close to Ohio River. Friendly staff and great seafood plus lots of other choices. Wish they would offer Shrimp n Grits. Nice salad bar with variety of things to add to salad.

Stopped in on Halloween weekend and was greeted by a friendly, courteous, and costumed staff. The salad bar was well stocked with plenty of items to chose from. The food was very good and the portions were of a good size. If you go away hunger, it's your own fault. The ice tea was excellent. However, parking was limited.

Thank clark957
