Dinner with hubby around 5pm, Ohio river had races but got a table outside on the river. Fairly busy but we're quickly seated. Had the blackened grouper sandwich, pretty decent, good bun. Hubby had Southwest chicken wrap, hotter than he expected, had Jalapeño peppers, but pretty good. Fries were crunchy and beer was cold. Sean was our serves, could have... More

There were 12 of us dinning tonight and everything was perfect! The atmosphere is relaxed. The service was efficient. And the food was excellent! I had the BBQ nachos for dinner. It was HUGE! Way more than I could eat, though I wanted to eat every bite!!

Atmosphere isn't much, unless you sit outside on the deck, overlooking the Ohio River. Unfortunately we were there as it was getting dark and cooling off so we ate indoors. I had the half rack of baby back ribs. Very good, good flavor, pretty meaty and nice and tender. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and said it was... More

This place is busy. Dive bar with extended patio and view of the river. Typical bar food. Drinks are decent price. I would definitely go again.

We stop while out boating, nice to have a beer riverside. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The bartenders have all been pleasant. The pork nachos are out of this world good!

We went here a few months ago for my birthday and had a bad experience. Waited forever for our food, it wasn't right, it was cold, no refills, the whole nine yards. Gave it a second chance today and same experience. We waited 40min for our 'average' food and neither order was correct. I'm thinking two strikes, you're out.

The view is awesome but they need to hire some good bartenders and servers. We went in on steak night and sat at the bar. We could not get served because the bartender was out smoking.

Service is terrible. I went to the bar 3 times to get drinks because our waitress never came around. After an hour when the food arrived she brought no silverware. I returned to the bar to get silverware.

The obvious plus to this place is that you can grab food outside and enjoy watching the river nearby. Although I don't have a boat, you can pull right up if you do and order. The downside to this place is the service is so-so as is the food. It can take a bit for the food to show up... More
