I had the opportunity yesterday to drop in to River Front Restaurant for a quick lunch. I chose to have the Shrimp and Okra Gumbo with a side salad.

This very hearty serving consists of a large platter of home made very flavorful nachos with slices of delicious roasted duck breast on top and finished off with a generous dollop of sour cream. There are also small pieces of vegetable pear in... More

The food is almost as lousy ad the service, but not quite. Save your money and digestive system by passing on this dressed up dump.
