Excellent dining experience at Clinkerdagger's! We had requested a window table and even though it was a very busy evening they managed to accommodate us. Such a nice atmosphere, combined with a beautiful view, attentive wait staff, and wonderfully delicious food. They acknowledged our anniversary too, which was a nice gesture on their part.

We had dinner before going over to the theater to see CATS. I had the scallops and they were perfect! The clam chowder and the French onion soups were very good as well! The bread…out of this world!
The only thing that I would suggest is controlling the temperature…it was a bit too warm inside for us.

We sat outside and enjoyed the views and sounds of the river. Our server was helpful and quick. We loved every bite and every sip. My husband got the seafood trio and I got the NY strip. Perfectly done and seasoned.

We arrived too early for the dinner menu but they had just taken the prime rib out so they graciously let us order from that menu. Calamari- tender and delicious! Crusted brie was good. Their sourdough garlic bread was to die for! One of the prime rib dishes was good but the other one was great. Salmon, scallops, pea salad, were all outstanding. A gorgeous place with a great view! Wonderful place for a special occasion!

Really good food! I was here 40 years ago and the experience is still outstanding! Salmon was awesome and the pea salad and creme brûlée were as delicious as I remembered. I’m so glad this establishment is still in business! Thank you!

We had such a great meal last July, and I had the scallops again because they were so good! There were four of us and only one had hit food! My mashed potatoes & veggies were barely warm & my friend had the same dish and problem. I believe the scallops weren’t nearly as seared and rare as they were last time! My husbands scallops and shrimp fettuccine had the shrimp a little over cooked. Our friends Cajun fettuccine was not warm and he sent it back. We should have too, but oh well. Manger made it right and got him a free refill of wine. My first choice of wine, H3 merlot was out! Really? There’s no shortage of it at the stores! Our server was fantastic! Main course & appetizer disappointing. If it was the first time there, we probably wouldn’t return, but we usually have a good experience and will try again!

Both of us had 7oz Filet Mignon
Rare, it was more medium rare but tender and great flavor
Mash potatoes were great
Fresh vegetables, amazing seasoning
Carrots a little firm but better than too soft

Seafood Trio was delicious. Vegetables not quite cooked and were difficult to even cut. Seasoning was great on them however.

As I was traveling alone, it was refreshing and comforting to have been treated like a long-time regular instead of a one-time visitor. Lori, my server, took excellent care of me and my dinner was excellent! Oh, and as far as being a "one-time" visitor, should I get in the neighborhood again, they'll be at the top of my dining list.

We were setting under a red light, which made eating odd. We couldn’t really see the food we were eating. The service was good, the food was unremarkable.

The food was average and felt it is more of paying for the view, which is usual for the restaurants with good view anyway... nothing outstanding other than the view.

My family ate at Clinkerdagger for a 16th birthday dinner. The staff was friendly, seated us on time, and the service was overall spot on. Tony did a great job of keeping our drinks full, and ensuring the meal was pleasant. A birthday dessert was provided, as well.

Overall quite pleased. My only point of contention was that as the dining area filled up, the noise noticeably increased. The addition of some sound dampeners would improve the experience.

Yes, we'll likely return at some point.

Food and ambiance was terrific. Service left a little to be desired. Waitress didn't bring the correct combination of food for two of the orders and forgot to bring the bread. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience.

The Waygu steak was tough, and the veggies were not cooked through. I was disappointed as the last time we were there the steak was great.

We celebrated our 35th Anniversary last night and had a wonderful and delicious dinner. Our server was friendly and helpful and it was great when he said our creme brulee is free! We also enjoyed the river view and the pavillion at the downtown park.
