This place has consistently good food. You can eat in if it's cold or stormy or eat out by the river running behind the restaurant.

We prefer to dine al fresco and this is a great location on the river. The inside dining atmosphere is also quit lovely. Varied lunch and dinner options available, every dish we have had has been well and artfully prepared.

Quality. From excellent soups, to the best onion rings and on to fabulous entrees. Sit outside by the river when weather permits.
