Gorgeous open air seating by the Riverwalk. Live music and delicious fresh food. Try the fresh fish of the day. The Root Salad was huge and only $8!! You can add meat for an extra charge.

Came here about 5:45pm with a group of 11. We thought we had a reservation but apparently it got misplaced. They were able to pull something together for us outside pretty quickly. The discovered our reservation on the next day. They have a lot of umbrellas to cover the tables from the sun.

We ordered appetizers and drinks as we waited for the last person in our group. The crab cakes were very good and the sauce was zesty but delicious. The scallops were very good and had a tasty white cream sauce.

There was even some acoustic live music being played outside. It was good but not overpowering.

The salads were all very good. The lobster ravioli was very good and the salmon was excellent, lightly smoked, the vegetables were cooked just right. The Mahi mahi was delicious.

Overall a great experience, but I just can't give 5 stars because of the reservation miss. That is a major miss especially when it's a business meal.

We stopped by here for a late lunch. It was pretty busy with folks sitting outside. We did the same. Had a nice table in the shade with a view of the trucker river. The service was very good and the location was nice. The food was average. Might be worth going back on a warm evening on a weekend as they gave live music on the patio.

The menu has a good variety and the food is excellent. There were six of us and all were very happy with their choices. Wonderful outdoor setting too.

I had the grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and sweet potato fries. It was really really good. We also enjoyed great friendly informed service. My friend had the pear Gorgonzola sandwich and it looked amazing. Nice outdoor seating too so you can enjoy the river scape.
