I’ve been here twice and it has always been a very good meal with an excellent view of Gore Creek. The food is generally very good and it is family friendly which can be hard to find in the area.

The food was satisfactory and the location next to the creek was the high point. I don't think we would go back since there are so many other good restaurants to try.

Very limited menu. What we had was good which was salads and crab cake. Service was lacking and not very friendly.
