Very enjoyable dinner. Limited hours, very dim lighting making it kind of hard to read the menu. Food was very good. $$$

We went here for our 1 year anniversary. I got cajun chicken and the NY strip and my husband got the NY strip. Cooked perfectly and was buttery delicious. Would go back. Be prepared to spend $$$.

Great steaks and salad bar. Beautiful view of the river, ask for a window seat. Make sure you book a table ahead, it's very popular.

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
