Started with raspberry mojito recommended by bartender. Delicious and refreshing! For an appetizer we had the escargot which was served with goat cheese/crustini. Excellent! For dinner I had crab legs and my husband had green curry. Both were incredible and they offer to de-shell for you. We had creme brûlée for dessert. Again...great! Would definitely go again. Only complaint was that it was very hot on the patio but of course that could not be helped as it was July in Wisconsin and we could have sat inside where it was very cool.

Thank Laure B

I had the shrimp and scallops and husband have the filet. Mine had a truffle sauce and it was to die for. I must say that is"the best" thing I've ever eaten!!! Cheese appetizers was also very good along with the salad wedge, which can pretty boring but really good. My husbands mushroom soup and filet was also excellent!! Yes spendy but those with it!!

Went for lunch and had the daily special. Nice and classy looking restaurant. Great view of the Mississippi River front. Good place for a nice wedding dinner or special event. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dress up and have a nice romantic time.

Thank you for your visit and the review. We have multiple private rooms for 10-400 guests to host events and we agree our staff are friendly and absolutely amazing! We do host many special occasions but all our guests are encouraged to dress to their comfort level when visiting us. We have a beautiful outdoor patio and relaxing tavern atmosphere where casual dress is always welcome.

Hubbie's steak was perhaps the worst he has ever had. Did not like it at all. My cheese plate was excellent--you ARE in WI! But the sald that I ordered for y main course was served without dressing. Huh?

A summer evening overlooking the Mississippi enjoying wine and beer and one of the best burgers I've had in a while. Ambience, food and drink make this a "come back often" spot.
