We had a limited menu with our group but the waiter and kitchen staff gladly made my filet “Oscar style”, which was delicious! Our whole meal (appetizer, salad, entrée, and dessert) was great and the service outstanding. Thanks for an enjoyable evening with a lovely...More

We've been coming here for years. The atmosphere is terrific, great views of the river, and interesting decor, but the food has gone downhill. The menu hasn't been updated in years. The "house specialty" is prime rib and it used to be good, but the...More

This is an upscale restaurant with very good service and menu such as salmon, steak, roast duck, etc. It's a great place for a special occasion, such as graduation, anniversary, Mother's Day.

We took our son and his girlfriend there for brunch and it was the best brunch we've ever had. Free mimosas with brunch and tons of food to choose from. The best biscuits and gravy I've ever had at a restaurant.

I think only Supper. When I asked the phone it pulled up open 4-10PM but the website says 5-9PM. I think calling would be the best bet. 319-351-1904
