Decline since previous visit... Restaurant nearly empty should have been first clue. Host seated us and placed torn menus on the table. One menu literally looked as though someone had taken a bite out of it. I asked for a cleaner one. All menus on...More

We have been to this restaurant 5-6 times (including under prior management), always in the summer so as to take advantage of the outdoor deck. Although the food is generally good, the canal is THE reason to come here, so why not sit outside? The...More

Loved sitting next to the canal. Traffic noise over the lift bridge a little much at times. Everyone enjoyed their meal and live entertainment.

Thank you, Carleen. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed coming by! It's too bad we have all the traffic over the bridge but we suppose it comes with the territory :) Hope to see you again soon!

Very unexceptional food, poor service. Hopefully we just got them on a bad night. We would have been better off bringing our own food and using the pinic tables outside.More

Super cute place for lunch. So many unique sandwich offerings. Love the high ceilings and the reclaimed barn wood and beams. Variety of seating including high top tables, booths, and standard tables. The server was great and recommended the raspberry Brie chicken sandwich and I...More

We used to come there on Friday nights and got your Turkey Club Wraps. But then suddenly, you refused to make them for the evening meals. So we haven't been there for some time now. Now again you have Turkey Club Wraps on the menu. Would we be able to get them around 7 PM now?
