The dinning room was busy with a large table of French tourists and two large... More

You may not expect much from the dining room of the island's Mercure Hotel. Well hang onto your hat...this is good, very good! We enjoyed beautiful local fresh produce prepared by a clever kitchen, served by attentive floor staff. You can't get fresher oysters (natural or kilpatrick), or the plump seared scallops that preceded our tempura King George Whiting with... More

Wonderful food choices, reasonably priced, and just delicious! Although American River is not as large as either Penneshaw or Kingscote and doesn't have the food options of the other towns, this restaurant was exceptional. We had some of our best dinners in Australia there.
