Yummy warm chicken salad. Charming waitress. Even the dog was welcome. Everyone loved their meals. Served on enamel plates. Playground for kids and even canoes for hire. One could spend a pleasant afternoon there.

The location is great, overlooking the river. Really a fun atmosphere. The food service, unfortunately, was not very good; server couldn't figure a lot of things out. The food was average at best.

Had a wonderful afternoon at this venue. Reasonable prices and great food. Ordered a pizza , thin crust and fresh topping. Had the boerewors and rooster koek it was great. The setting is what make the place, rustic but good service with couches to lounge in. Hired the paddle boat and went up the river, had a swim it was great.

Beautiful place to send a few hours over brunch and longer. Don't expect fast service, everyone is relaxed and friendly and the food is great. Kids were happy swimming and renting the kayaks while the parents sat on the river bank and enjoyed the view. Food and drinks can be expensive though, but I suppose you're paying for the ambiance as well. Will definitely be back.
