It was just an average experience. Service was very slow. Food was decent, but small portions.It was great eating outdoors on the river.

On a nice day, it is fun to sit outdoors on the deck that overlooks the water. Brunch is plentiful...seafood, sushi, meats, salads and decadent deserts!

Server was fine. She did a nice job. My brother and I had the brunch. Not very good. The desserts were good though. The sushi was weak and the oysters were not that great. The Bloody Mary's were bad. Desserts are good. Service was fine....More

On Thursday evening they offer two full dinners (soup or salad, entree, coffee or tea and dessert) and a bottle of wine for $50. The food was cooked perfectly and the waitress was friendly and efficient. The view is nice on the river.

Love to dine outside, and they have the place to do it. Klein's is right on the river, with a great view. Started at their little tiki bar, where they have a phenomenal selection of beer - then sat down to eat on their deck....More

That is the stupidest response I ever heard. Just because a restaurant is having"a great year" doesn't mean there is no room for improvement. Watered down drinks is no my idea of class. If management does not deal with it, I... More
