A nice walk across the bridge this is right below the bridge. Nice lunch with reasonable prices. Great service. The house salad was great and my husband had the chicken kabob. Nice walk back and it was a perfect outing.

Underwhelmed by this perfect location restaurant. Opposite the shore of Louisville so you will relish the view. Plus there is a band/music playing near this restaurant. I'd skip it.
