Food was average, service okay, but unfriendly and slow, but the view from the deck was great. It was relaxing on a sunny day to sit here and watch the tubers and rafts go by. The burgers were like pre-formed frozen patties, not very tasty....More

Stopped in for lunch with 3 couples. The restaurant offers seating overlooking the Arkansas River. To get the best seating, call in advance. We had the burgers and fish & chips and all the food was excellent. Service was prompt.

Not sure for inside. We always like to get an inside table along the river. Give them a call as they may allow dogs on the patio outside.
