Stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the good food. We ate at the bar on the deck and our service was outstanding. Our only concern, as we are non smokers, is the people were smoking around us. Definitely will go back though.

We stopped twice for lunch and had an excellent meal Mot importantly they had a spot for our rented houseboat to park while we ate a couple of meals we didn't have to prepare.

After our river cruise, we went up stairs to Williams landing. We sat outside on the deck, and felt like we were in a tree house. I had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the fish sandwich, both of which were excellent. A couple...More
