The new patio and bar really complete the experience. Still the same good food! Try the Fish n' Chips!

We stopped for lunch midweek. We ate on the lower deck that overlooked the river. The food was delicious and portions were plentiful. Our waiter was so polite & attentive. Had the taco salad and Dr. Pepper BBQ burger. Yum!!!

The food is excellent, the staff are incredibly friendly and sitting on the lower deck or outside is great fun to look at the river. Enjoy!

Ate here with my family and loved it. I had the chicken fried steak special and it was great. Our service was fabulous and loved walking down to the river. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

Great natural location, off of the river and next to the Inn. Restaurant patio and landscaping could be groomed better since they advertise it being a River cafe. Good food

The waitress was cheery and efficient ... everything was delicious ... chicken-fried pork loin was a real treat, as were the fried green beans and Texas Smashed Potatoes ! A great small-town diner !
