So glad I tried this restaurant! The place was adorable, the staff was very friendly, and the food was delicious. (Plus it's in a great location with lots to do in the area.) I would absolutely go back again.

Very nice restaurant. Excellent staff. Food was delicious. Nice views of the river. I would definitely recommend and will definitely go back. I see they have a rear deck, I want to eat out there once the weather gets warmer.
