This is a place in the middle of the city that you can sit down in a deck and watch a beautiful river pass by as you eat! The food is great with all manner of cuisines from your basic burger right through many cajun/creole classics!

This is the most consistent restaurant on the north shore. Always good and a bargain for the amount they serve. Never a bad meal. Spot on no matter what you order. Drinks great, beer on tap and they have a multitude available. Kid friendly and pleasant dinning.

Outside seating overlooks the river. Very nice relaxing atmosphere. You can walk down to the river from their deck. Nothing too special about the inside. Good LA style food.

Went out with another couple for dinner here. Food was great, lots of choices, wasn't too loud. If you like to try different types of alcoholic drinks, this place seems to have a wide variety available. Will eat here again!
