          Great place for lunch. Sit out on the deck and enjoy views of the Connecticut River. Excellent burgers. Service is great. I highly recommend it. Our waitress Sarah was wonderful. Heard the deck has outside heaters so stays open well into autumn.

          Pretty area. Good service. Menu limited. Fish sandwich good. Asked for sweet potato fries they had an up charge of $3.00. Not impressed. My husband's prime rib sandwich was greasy and tough. Not running back there.
