The service is always good at this restaurant, whether you are there for drinks or dinner. The food is good...mostly better than not. When there is something amiss, the staff is always willing to fix it.

I had a groupon for this restaurant and and my with and I were in the mood for bar-b-q. Upon reading the menu we changed our mids to bushetta chicken and stuffed snapper. We both started with a bowl of French onion soup. It was a cold snowy night (what else is new in the Buffalo area?) so it sounded... More

I made reservations for Thursday evening dinner. When we got there the place was large and EMPTY! I thought this was a bad sign but it was to our benefit. The waitress was pleasant and very helpful with our drink choices. Get the Sangria. It was delicious and home made with fresh apples, oranges and blackberries. I'd go back just... More

went in October with 40 people. restaurant is very nice looking, well prepared for us. Ordering was a challenge as the kids were sat apart from the parents and they insisted on taking the parent orders first (Always serve kids first). Worse was the considerable mixups and delays from the kitchen. We were in town for a hockey tournament but... More

We are very sorry that you had a bad experience; however we were never informed that the kids had a game to get to. Half of the party was at least a half hour late for the reservation and the tables were served according to when they ordered. After two of the servers orders were in we were asked to... More

We have been to this restaurant many times and usually the service is great and so is the food. They have great specials, especially Burger night where all 1/2 pound burgers are only $6 with home made chips or $7 with hand cut fries. Usually great but a little disappointing this evening. We ordered our burgers medium and medium rare... More

Went there for lunch with another couple.....we had planned to go to the village inn but the place was packed full at 12:30 so we left and went to the Riverstone instead. No regrets......they have a really good hamburger menu and burgers come in 8 ounce or 1lb sizes. The place was not very busy and the service was great.... More

While staying in the area for 3 days we wanted to try a local restaurant and we weren't disappointed! The service from the very beginning was amazing, the food was excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone. We sat at the bar and our server, Stephanie, was the best! Enjoy!!!

Check this place out on Wednesday nights. It's $6 burger night and the burgers are awesome. I had the Blue Heron burger with blue cheese and a bacon jam. Delicious.
