We found the setting very nice as it is right on the river. The dining area is very nice and if you are seated on the patio and if it is cool there are heaters available. The menu has adequate choices. The food is average but the prices are well above average. Very pricy. We found the service to be... More

Headed for their brunch buffet. Food was good but my favorite part was after brunch relaxing on the green outside and playing lawn games.

The food is good here, the scenery is great. I would not recommend brunch. I ate my first $20 omelet ever. Never expected the brunch to cost $20, I would have passed. More my fault I suppose. So basically if you like to eat like buffet style without all the selection, go for it.

Destination Brunch along the Susquehanna River with friends. Nice selection of breakfast & lunch time foods for the price. My favorite...naturally, the Desserts! The Lemon Cake (cheesecake cut into squares) is scrumptious! It's a help yourself buffet except for the carving station, where I was disappointed, due to the attendant slicing the beef paper-thin & only putting one small piece... More

It was our anniversary and they RSVP'd a nice patio table with a view. Service was attentive & appropriate. Menu looked good but food was average on par with a good restaurant but for $100 with no drinks or dessert it was too pricey for what we had. $42 steak was no better than what we have at home for...

We attended a wedding reception here. The food was great, the service was good, and the view of the river perfect.

Located along the Susquehanna River front and old historical building was fun to find. Not warm enough to sit outside but always nice to have a water view. Basically bistro food. Burger and chicken wrap was our choice and both were fine. The menu is not huge but certainly enough choices for a great lunch. This town is great for... More

Find foods, affordable, terrific view of the Susquehanna. Weather permitting outside eating. Weather not permitting big, warm glass enclosed eating w/river view. Nice selection of beers. Tasteful selections at on-site gift shop.

Visited the weekend after valentines day. Excellent food and staff. This will definitely be a regular spot for us. I can't wait for nice weather so that we can sit outside and enjoy the restaurant overlooking the river.

We had a reservation Saturday evening, 25February2017- arrived ahead of time. Total chaos at "check in"- no table available and no idea when there would be a table. The "host" said very flippantly something about "this tornado"and waved his arm around the crowded, loud check in area. I was blown away- no real clear explanation and his constant shoulder shrugging... More

I appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your recent visit. I am by no means trying to make excuses as to why Saturday was a rough day not only on our building but our staff as well. We have our outside dining room with overhead awning and retractable sides that offers additional seating in these typically... More

Enjoy casual dining in a restored silk mill along the Susquehanna River. Our four seasons Dining Room, a timbered structure that extends from our building and is enclosed on three sides with glass, has a breathtaking view of the River at one of its widest points. The menus include fresh, locally produced foods which vary with the seasons. In the summertime, some are grown on the premises. The temperature controlled dining room is open for lunch, dinner, Saturday Breakfast, and Sunday brunch. If you are looking for a banquet facility for an event, please conside our newly renovated, River Room located on the second floor.

Our seasonal Pizza Patio restaurant is open from May until September featuring Wood Fired Pizza's!
