Kept seeing the signs for this place that said first class didn't have to be expensive. It was not first class except for the scenery. Beautiful dining room overlooking the river. Food was nourishment and service was lacking.

My wife and I ate at Gaston's in 2013 for our anniversary. We ordered with no price limit and our steak was absolutely terrible, tough, stringy, poorly cooked, and unseasoned. Given what we spent, it was a huge disappointment and we wrote Gaston's off at...More

Pricey for the food, but service and atmosphere was good. So if you want to eat in a museum it's great. Food was ok but i expected a lot more quality.

Casual. Small restaurant overlooking river. I believe they will also prepare your daily catch if you went fishing.
