Hot bacon salad dressing was excellent, egg dishes were great, side dishes were tasty. Bacon was good but prime rib was disappointing and chewy. Wide variety of tasty side dishes. They need an omelete station Desserts were delicious. The food stations were spread out nicely...More

The food tables are set up in stations (bakery, desserts, salads, etc). This is very nice as it helps to shorten long lines at one huge buffet serving table. Environment is lively and fun. Staff are excellent.

This establishment has been around for a long time and is still going strong! Nice location, friendly service and well prepared food. If you have the time, it's worth the stop. Go early or be prepared to wait.

This restaurant opened in 1977 while I was a college student, and it's still there, with food as good as always! Prime Rib is a specialty, and it was delicious. We arived early to snag a river-side table, and enjoyed our evening immensely!

I really liked the historic pump house or whatever it was. If you look around you can see different things that are part of the history. There is a nice patio next to river. After dinner you can walk across the bridge and over to...More

I would say $25 also. But they have a great room with a view. Call and ask for the room booker. Do a brunch, probably cheaper.

I think only Supper. When I asked the phone it pulled up open 4-10PM but the website says 5-9PM. I think calling would be the best bet. 319-351-1904
