This is mainly a bar, but there is a family entrance. Good smelt, catfish, burgers, etc. Pretty good service and friendly.

Love the Catfish filets, they're always amazing! Steak is the best deal around and the best place to get one if you're not in the mood for fish!

A friend took us to the Dam Inn. It was good, in a bar food kind of way. Nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible either. I did enjoy the location next to the dam, and it had a good atmosphere. Service was spot-on. We don't have...More

Has an amazing view of the water underneath the dam. Our waitress was extremely busy yet provided wonderful service. I would recommend the seafood such as the catfish and bluegill over the steaks. Nice laid back place.

Always a relaxed fun atmosphere. The outside patio is great when the weather permits. We always go for pre or post river boating appetizers and drinks. Great little spot off the beat and track. They never disappoint.

On the jukebox, "Sweet Home Alabama" bumped out a friendly vibe. The noon crowd was about average, and outside the restaurant, the roar of the dam kept up a soothing background note. The dog was the problem. If it wasn't for the blasted dog, it'd...More
