The view is about all it has going for it. The see waitress service stunk, and that’s putting it mildly. The bathrooms are barely clean and small. The food came out very over cooked after waiting a long time. Won’t be back.

This eatery has an established presence of over 30 years, however, the best part is the location overlooking the Hudson River waterfront. Based on a friend's recommendation, we returned after a long absence & sat on their large outdoor deck. Service was friendly & timely,...More

Our hostess didn’t seem to want us to sit on the outside patio even though others were already seated there. She definitely isn’t good at stifling her feelings. We had a day of storms and sun so I could understand her reluctance but hey, her...More
