Great view of the river from the windows in the back of the restaurant. Also, excellent service from the entire staff. However, in my opinion the food was just average. Overall a good experience.

Great view of the river Food was so-so. Steaks were all over cooked, potatoes undercooked, everything under seasoned. Appetizers were good. Sounds of water were great. I would recommend sitting outside as long as you don't mind lots of very "friendly" birds.
