This all interior pine family run restaurant has a great salad bar, hot food items are very good too. Service is friendly and timely. Clean, efficiently run location right on the rivers edge as the name implies!

A straight forward, down to earth, no frills hometown restaurant. Large portions; great open faced sandwiches and great meatloaf. A specialty is homemade pie. A favorite place for working local. Breakfast, lunch and diners.

This was the first time eating here. Friend recommended it to us because we said how much we liked club sandwiches, he said they were large but never dreamed so big. We each ordered one, it is as pictured above. Of course took home the other half and ate mine for breakfast/lunch the next day. Price was 8.99 for this... More

A carafe of coffee and a jug of water were delivered to the table. The clubhouse sandwich would have fed a small family. Portion sizes were more than generous. You get your money's worth here! It was pretty in the snow and probably even more so in summer.

At first was hesitant to go there because we don't carry cash we use credit cards for everything, on the door they had a sign that said they charge a three and a half percent processing fee for credit cards so we asked to see the menu.

Stopped into Wilson's to try the new Prime Rib and Crab Leg buffet. The food looked beautiful and tasted terrific. Never a disappointing stop at Wilson's!

This is a longstanding restaurant in the area, and it has apparently begun a bit of a downhill slide. Food is acceptable but not memorable; service quality variable depending on the server, the day, etc. Pricing is high for the quality of the food, and they now charge an extra fee for the use of a credit card. There are... More
