We heard this was a good place to try for Pizza and our Friday night is pizza night we tried. The pizza was good and tasty and worth a return. We saw the sandwiches which were large and we will return to try these but in the afternoon when we can sit outside and watch the river traffic because the... More

A great place for ribs or lunch which was my experience. A great day to sit outdoors and watch the boats go by. A had a great unusual soup called Pizza Soup.

Having to be able to sit outside, taking in as much summer you can. Food was a little pricey, waitress could be a little more pleasant. Great drink

Didn't go inside this place, we ate outside on the deck by an active waterway. The service was initially very good, but kind of fizzed out when it got close to 9pm. Still, very friendly server and nice menu with reasonable prices. I got a chicken club Sammy, another friend the Reuben, and another the hamburger. The food was so-so,... More

Just moved to McHenry and have been going to different restaurants all over the town. The atmosphere here is welcoming, the food is wonderful and has great prices across the board, you can sit outside by the river or inside. Have been back 3 times already and will continue to.

The restaurant by the fox river is outstanding, we took the grandkids there and they loved feeding the ducks. The Corona Cod sandwich is the best.

This place is going downhill. Used to love the Italian Beef, not so good anymore - tough bread and stringy gristly meat. If you decide to try, the giardineria peppers are really hot! The french Fries are good, but the onion strings they thrown in are in a batter that soaks so so much oil, leaving them greasy and offering... More

This was one of our favorites. Owners are letting it get run down. The outside of the building looks terrible. The deck needs painting and even the docks are in poor shape. It is sad to see such a fun place be neglected.
