I have been several times. We have taken out of town guests and they loved it also. It is always a bit crowded. Finding a parking spot is usually a challenge, but we always find one.The service is good and the food is great.

My daughter and I stopped in for dinner while staying at the Best Western across the street. It is along the river, providing a nice view. Ambiance was relaxed with several TVs. Food was basic, good BBQ. I would return.
