We had the hoagie sandwich with a beer and the food and service was great and sitting along the river was nice right by the path along it.

My friends and I had a great time in the arcade. The drinks were good and bartender was very helpful choosing them! Definitely will be going back!

My daughter and I took her girls to lunch to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation. After a delicious lunch on the patio, the girls had fun with the arcade!
