I had a great prime rib there. My wife was a bit overwhelmed with the chicken and dumplins. They too were great, just wasn't as hungry as she thought she was. I look forward my next visit when passing through. The river view was great.

The chicken and dumpling serving is HUGE. Found out after attempting but not succeeding in eating my order that my hubby and I could have shared an order. Something to think about. Entree comes with a relish tray which was nice. Choice of soup or...More
