Don't visit unless you have plenty of time to wait and are willing to correct most of your order. On a Sunday they were out of about 1/2 the things we ordered. When the food finally came it was pretty good. Not sure I'd come again.

The Freight House used to be a family favorite many years ago. What a disappointment to be back and have an awful experience. Started with poor service, cold and dry burgers, fries that were too salty and ended with having to wait for such a long time to get our bill. I was a beautiful sunny day and only 2... More

The food here is pretty tasty every time we've visited. The service has been good too. We usually lunch up before shopping for antiques.

Food is mediocre for the price. Service was slow and it was not very busy. So many good restaurants in still water. Go elsewhere.

I had the buffalo burger and my wife had the lamb burger. Both were prepared as ordered and both were very good. The Buffalo burger was very juicy with lots of toppings and quite tasty. The fries were also very good. Recommended.

If you want a restaurant where you don't have a problem being ignored, then this place is fine. If you don't mind waiting 30 minutes for a soda refill, then enjoy. If you think it's okay to watch people who came in 15-20 minutes after you be served before you, then enjoy. oh, and if you complain to the waitstaff,... More

Overpriced and terrible food Higher prices than downtown restaurants and nothing to back it up except the view Our server was nice and did her best even though she was slammed. She corrected her mistakes and isn't responsible for the menu... Families shouldn't come here: it's a burger joint that doesn't offer burgers I the kids menu. My burger was... More

This is very nice place for hangout. We really enjoyed Music and Dance. It was my friend's Bachelor Party. Staff were very friendly and offered free wine for testing.

I met up with some friends at the fright house because of the wonderful view of the river. I had been there in the past and always had a pleasant experience. It seems, however, that things have gone down hill. When we arrived no one was around to great us and finally a waitress shouted for us to find somewhere... More
