I ordered a wine from server Sarah who asked if it would be OK served in plastic because of the rule. I said yes. My husband ordered Stella beer from draft. Out comes the drinks.....and... More

Went to what was once our favorite restaurant. We won't be going back after our experience Saturday night. Ordered our usual drinks and appetizer of Artichoke Hearts. They must have changed the recipe because they were horrendous. The stems were fibrous and you couldn't eat them. When our waitress brought our soup we told her they were bad and we... More

Food here is generally good but I'd stick with the fish. Walleye, perch served fish and chips style. Chicken piccata ok. Hamburgers are huge! Live music in the bar area. Great place to sit and watch the boats go by. Indoor/outdoor seating. Pretty sunset. Very casual.

I must say this restaurant has been a favorite of mine for years mainly because of the fried artichoke hearts and atmosphere. But this afternoon we went to celebrate Mothers Day with our inlaws and daughter. Our service was terrible. The waitress was very slow about bringing drinks and taking the orders. Our food didn't come for 1 and 1/2... More

First we had the best coconut shrimp for an appetizer, My grandson had fish sliders which he said were "awesome" (and let me tell you he's... More

There were two of us and my sister loved her meal but I was disappointed. I had French Onion soup which was good - what you would get anywhere. The Chicken tenders with fries and coleslaw - I was not impressed. The breading on the chicken was not appetizing looking - very well done and a bit hard (although I... More

We prefer to patronize local businesses rather than chain restaurants, so we decided to try the River Cafe. Safe to say, we won't be back. The sandwiches are served a la carte, and are over priced. I tried the crab cake sandwich that came with BLT. It should actually be considered a BLT with a 'smear' of crab cake. Actually,... More
