We were greeted with a friendly atmosphere. We ordered burger, salad and wings- all very tasty. We'll be back for the food, great service, and gorgeous view of the river!

We sat outside on the balcony overlooking the beautiful view. We ate chicken wings and salads and they were delicious. Afterwards we walked down the back stairs and explored the area, walking over the rocks and taking lots of pictures. Perfect outing for our family.
