I stopped by here one day while antiquing. The food was good not the best I have had in Lambertville. The service is good as well. Nothing was really wrong but nothing stood out to me as great either.

Something has changed from previous visits and not for the better. Food average. Menus were wrinkled and used. Service okay, not great. Disappointed.

My wife and I came here twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not fancy. But portions are plentiful and uniformly good. Their burgers with onion rings are delectable. And as a BYOB, It's very affordable.

Nice restaurant right next to Canal and 1 block from the bridge. It has 2 levels and backyard sitting area. I was there with my family for lunch and ordered beat salad, salmon sandwich and grill chicken sandwich. All was good.

It's ok. With all the restaurants to choose from in area this would not be my choice. It is average. Nice atmosphere and has outdoor dining by the canal.

I know that in the past they have made some local wines available to customers, but typically it's BYOB.
