A friend took us to the Dam Inn. It was good, in a bar food kind of way. Nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible either. I did enjoy the location next to the dam, and it had a good atmosphere. Service was spot-on. We don't have...More

Has an amazing view of the water underneath the dam. Our waitress was extremely busy yet provided wonderful service. I would recommend the seafood such as the catfish and bluegill over the steaks. Nice laid back place.

Always a relaxed fun atmosphere. The outside patio is great when the weather permits. We always go for pre or post river boating appetizers and drinks. Great little spot off the beat and track. They never disappoint.

Kind of hidden to people that have never been here before but it is delicious. You can sit barside and order drinks and food or you can sit on the family side and enjoy a more relaxing part of the restaurant. It's a little pricey...More
