We stopped in today for some food and a beer and were shocked to find that it was the owners last day of operation (August 17th) and they were closing. What a loss for the area. it's one of the best riverside dining venues around....More

We chose It's on aThursday night for dinner and drinks with another couple. Food was pretty much what we expected for a bar, but the spirits drinks were short pours, it seemed to me. Unbeatable setting on the deck, and good service.

Great service as always! A couple of mixups in our food was handled extremely well by the server. The food was great, the service was excellent! It will continue to be a go to spot!

The service here was terrible, but the food was fairly good. The beer was very expensive. It wasn't very clean. We had to get our own table service, ask for a table to be cleaned. And also got our own water.

Our food was amazing (quesadilla, chicken sandwiches, burger), but the service was pretty poor. Our server was very nice, but she was very slow in getting drinks and taking our order. The atmosphere on the patio was beautiful.

Not exactly new. Been open a couple of years. Sleepy little town by the river but right on the Mississippi so lots of traffic goes through there. Great place to go if you live nearby or happened to be passing through.
