Great food & beautiful view of the Mississippi River. Service wasn’t great, but adequate. Hidden gem that hasn’t been “discovered” yet! Glad we did!

Not your typical tasteless buffet. A short variety but was very good especially the grits and home fries.

Overlooking the Mississippi river and bridge. We enjoyed the overwelming seafood platter. Very nice deep fried fish with a bottle of sauvignon blanc. Very tasty. Staff is very friendly. We enjoyed the evening in this great atmosphere.

Description
The Pilot House, pays homage to this view and was inspired by Mark Twain's Life on the Mississippi. The restaurant's appeal, much like that of the riverboat captain's quarters, serves as a meeting place where tales are great & long. Focused around signature cocktails and shareable dishes, our menu has something for everyone.
