Very comfortable, relaxing restaurant with great views! We had the Prime Rib and we both loved it. My husband had a side of mushrooms that it said were outstanding! We both enjoyed the comfortable relaxing feel of the restaurant with views overlooking the river.

This restaurant was fantastic. The salad bar was expansive. So much to choose from. I had filet mignon and sweet potatoes which were delicious. We had a seat by the window. You have to call an hour before they open to get a reservation.

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.
