The location is cool and the idea of eating dinner or lunch on the river is cool. However the service and food here are absolutely nothing to get excited about. The service is practically non existent, we were waiting on promptly, as the woman passed...More

Our family was looking for a fun place to eat lunch and spend a Sunday afternoon. We decided to walk the riverfront and eat here. The location was beautiful. It was fun to watch the boats go by and all the activity on the river....More

Good atmosphere and service. Great spot for a drink. We ordered food and it was disappointing. I made the mistake of ordering Swordfish, which I should have known better. My girlfriend ordered fish, which was ok. The french fries were tasteless and went overboard to...More

Local watering hole on a barge tied up along a public park on the Hudson River. A good place to cool off and listen to local bands in the summer. Plenty of drink choices & specials everyday. We have only been here for drinks.

I have lived in the area my entire life but this is the first time I have ever gone here. If you get motion sick, this is not the place for you. You can definitely feel the movement of the river. It's not enough to...More

Food is pretty good. Riverfront Fries are amazing...crispy French fries covered in cheese, salsa, sour cream and bacon. I have had different wraps and sandwiches during different visits and all have been good. Nice atmosphere on the boat. Biggest downfall is service is very slow....More
