We took our exchange student here after watching Grumpy Old Men. We had excellent service. It was such a beautiful view watching the sun set down behind the Mississippi. The walleye was so good! I think I would recommend for lunch or dinner.

Food would have been good if it hadn't been over salted. Wait staff seemed hostile and inflexible. There are many better restaurants along the river where you get just as good a view and have a better experience.

This is a local restaurant with very good food and a great view of the river! The servers are very friendly, even though busy the night we dined. Our server Cassie S. did a fine job, we enjoyed the atmosphere and entrees.

Late lunch after visiting the National Eagle Center. Food and service were great! The walleye was fantastic, as were the jambalaya, etoufee, and grilled shrimp salad. The clam chowder was very good, fresh but with a slightly smokey flavor. Very unique and VERY good. "Best...More
