Stopped to grab a quick bite, order at the counter and food is brought to table. Inside eating area is small, but they have tables outside overlooking the river. Food was good and service was friendly. They have soft serve ice cream.

Food was good, and the price reasonable. Not a lot of seating inside, but more outside. Nice to sit and watch the Mississippi while having lunch.
