Wonderful location and an attitude that says we don't really want you here. I know that a never ending stream of tourists can get old, but isn't that who paid the bills?

Lovely view overlooking the river. Well stocked bar and friendly servers. Our only disappointment was that no bread or salad was included with our meals. With that in mind, it was expensive dining.

I used to come here for business meetings all the time years ago. My daughter and I just came for dinner last week. I forgot how much I liked this place. The service is awesome. The food is fantastic. Definitely check it out
