We were staying at the Doubletree an thought dinner on the water would be romantic so we decided to try the place we sat outside so we could watch the river

The staff was really nice and work hard to take care of us

I had the grouper grilled which was pretty good. My wife had fried fish which had a strange taste it was like the oil was old and used to fried everything they fried.

Overall the food was fair but I expected better based on the price I gave it a three based on the excellent service.

This place is a step Back in time. We stopped for the night on our trip just to have dinner here. We were not disappointed. The staff was very helpful and worked hard to take care of our needs.

The night we were there it was busy but we were able to eat in the original log inn part of the building. You could just feel the history.

The food was fantastic and oh my you will not leave there hungry. You you like red cabbage there is the best I have ever had even better than grandma's. An the fried chicken is delicious moist and more than I could eat.

The prices were very reasonable also. If you are in the area you need to eat here
