Lots of fried fish, seafood and in general good pub food. Mainly outdoor dockside seating. Amtrak swing bridge is fun for kids.

Fish tacos were great tasting, but being their last day serving for the season I guess they were short on adding fish. It has cabbage in it which I love but for my husband it was bitter. So beware anyone that doesn't like cabbage or Cole slaw in their tacos. Love sitting outside near the water.

A quirky restaurant with a lively setting. The service was very good and the people friendly and accommodating. The plus is that it's dog friendly. We had red stripe, Mahi Mahi and Perch. All the food was good and served with good chips.

I've heard many good reviews about bridges from friends and family . The ambiance is great. The food and service not so much. The fries were burnt and very soggy with grease. The fryer oil was obviously old as well. Our entrees were cooked from frozen. The food is food service quality. For the price the food was subpar.

This is a real quaint place by Trail Creek. You can sit by the water and watch boats go by and ducks swim in the water. We were here on a beautiful evening and it was so enjoyable! The food was awesome. I had the Cajun Fish Sandwich and my husband had the Buffalo Chicken Wrap. The menu is large... More

The outside seating is really great. It is along the City's river, Trail Creek with an interesting movable train bridge close by. I especially like the pork sandwich. There is a place where kids can play on a nice sized sandbox while you are waiting for your food. We enjoy going here with other couples or with our grandkids who... More

We liked the overall atmosphere. Looking at the water and hotel was neat. Food was mediocre and service was okay. We were disappointed in the bathrooms. You had to walk down 20+ stairs to get there and they were a little gross.
