We cane here on Friday night. It was out first time. The place impresses because it is an old mill, but very well transformed in a cozy restaurant. Courtesy of the waitress was amazing. Food and wine were also very good. Dessert options could be...More

We came to the Power Co for a celebratory dinner and was not disappointed. The Prime Rib was so tender, the Cajun style will be my choice next time. My daughter just loved the stuffed prawns. All was wonderful!

The meal was spectacular. I suggest getting any of the many cuts of steak they offer as you will struggle to find better in town. The view of the river with American Bald Eagles flying overhead was transcendent. The fact that the culinary staff take...More

We've been coming here for years. The atmosphere is terrific, great views of the river, and interesting decor, but the food has gone downhill. The menu hasn't been updated in years. The "house specialty" is prime rib and it used to be good, but the...More
