The place has a good atmosphere and great view of the river. The food is just average and the wine list is weak. The staff is very nice. This place could be much better with a more upscale menu and better preparation and presentation.

Not may menu options and the food is over priced for what you get. Nothing good to say about it. Will not go back.

Our group of five, including one child enjoyed a delicious dinner on the deck. We were seated close to the building, so out of the sun, but away from the view of the river. The food was well prepared and plated. We enjoyed the add-on...More
