The view while having lunch of the Blue water bridge to Canada was pretty inside the restaurant. The food was good, a bit pricey and the server was slacking. I can understand if they had of been busy but they were not. We had to continually wait for our server. We over looked it because we were enjoying time with friends and the view made up for it.

We came here to visit family and close family friends in November. The view of the Bluewater Bridge was glorious and if you get to see a freighter, even better. We had a party of 10 including an infant. At 1:30 on a Tuesday only locals were at the bar and one other patron in the entire place. The table ordered a variety of menu items including Caeser salad with blackened chicken, perch, regular mac and cheese, fries, and fish tacos. The fish tacos is a recommended dish. In all seriousness being from Florida’s west coast they were nothing special to us. However the loaded mac and cheese was amazing. It had bacon, asparagus, chicken, and tomatoes and we could not stop eating it, despite being full. Take my advice and order that. You won’t be sorry.

Great staff! Waitress was friendly and courteous and very attentive. The atmosphere is nice with great views of the river. The food was average, nothing to rant and rave about. Decent prices. I would try it again.

This place is a bit pricey for what you get but it is located in the hotel so you don’t have to drive and the lights at night are pretty.

The reason I say this is the best restaurant ever is because I accidentally left my purse behind when I left. Several hours later, I called and they were holding it for me--Everything was there! OMG, what a relief! I sincerely appreciate that! Great service, great people! Thank you!

In addition, food was delicious--I had fish and chips, tartar sauce was great! Cheesecake was also very good!
