They have a good variety of food, great sandwiches and burgers. Plus salads, soups and meals. They have a great atmosphere in the restaurant, or you can eat on their outside covered porch. The restaurant is overlooking the river.

This restaurant was highly recommended by the manager of the rv park. Three of us couples went on Saturday evening. The people at the next table were enjoying steaks, but we ordered the seafood-- fried catfish, baked potato, cole slaw and "shut-up Dogs." For me,...More
