Customer in from out of town and it was fantastic food! Great sitting outside. Only wish the jackhammer wasn't working on the bridge that late!

We enjoyed the restaurant's food and our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The only sour point was the length of time it took for us to get our drinks. I watched our put in our drink orders and then watched him return to the bar at least two more times. I would estimate it took 10 minutes to get two craft beers. It was apparent that the bartenders could not handle the volume of service. It didn't affect our meal, but it was a bit disappointing.

We had a great dinner! I had the prime rib and it was fabulous! We had one issue with a glass of wine that wasn’t delivered until we were almost ready to leave but they took it off the bill. Noise level a little loud but we could converse. I’d love to come back and dine on the outside deck! I would recommend and come back!!

I really enjoy this restaurant. The service and location are outstanding. We went for Sunday brunch and I had not been there for awhile. They have a buffet which was of good quality food but with basically only 5 selections I thought it was overpriced at $18. Next time I will order from the menu. The serving staff are very well-trained and a joy in interact with. I plan to go more often.

Decided to go somewhere different. Way way to loud couldnt hear each other talk across table. Someone across from us was changing their baby on the floor instead of in restroom. My prime rib got mixed up with friends. Bartenders were slow. For the price you charge staff should be more on to of People changing diapers where others are eating. Totally rude! Would not recommend.

The smoked Gouda chicken nachos were outstanding!!! Great fun every time I have been here. The blackened salmon was so spicy I could not eat it, even with the delicious Hollandaise sauce. So if you have an aversion to spicy foods, do not order the salmon. Everything else was very good!

Our server, Jamila, was friendly and prompt and she stopped in to check on us just enough - not too much or too little. I had the chicken pot pie which is actually a chicken stew with puff pastry on top and it was fantastic! My mom wanted a plain burger with Swiss cheese, which isn’t on the menu, but she was able to be accommodated with no problem. Highly recommend to anyone looking to dine in the Hudson area!

This restaurant is located right on the St. Croix River in Hudson, WI. Great atmosphere and views of the river and even better food. We sat by the fireplace which was cozy and private. The staff was exceptional and attentive. We ordered the Alfredo Chicken Meatball and the Wood Fired Rotisserie Chicken which came with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. Both dishes were amazing. The rotisserie chicken was very juicy and tasty. We also had the chocolate cake which did not disappoint. We highly recommend this restaurant. We have plans to go back again next week.

First visit and we were impressed. Our food was excellent and so was our server, wish I could remember his name. Nice selection of beer also. The only thing that could have better is if they would have turned on the fireplace!!! Next time we are in the area, we will eat here again. Hopefully will make it over there this summer as we would love to enjoy the outdoor seating and view. Thx you!

The noise level was far too loud for us to relax and enjoy our meal. The service was very good and we enjoyed the food. We were just disappointed in the noise level and would not recommend it for that reason.

I made the reservation through your website several days before. It had a place for a request or remark. I made a request for an igloo. A few days before the reservation I called to inquire about the igloo and was told you had to call directly to reserve the igloo. I didn't see this on the website and if the website asks for remarks/requests I believe they should at least be looked at which mine apparently wasn't or I would've been notified that I couldn't get the igloo. We came to enjoy a gift card for my 50th birthday and thought the igloo would be fun.

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant. The ONLY suggestion I have is to ask for a table by the Fireplace rather than by the door/bar. But our waiter was fantastic, the food was terrific (in our group we ordered: prime rib, walleye sandwich, cheese curds, walleye bits (tartar sauce is fantastic!), the Lobster Bisque soup and the roasted chicken. Everyone really enjoyed their dish. What a nice find! We left very satisfied. Also, the prices were just great! I ordered the Queen Prime Rib which was only $23.00 and it was huge! Great value for prime rib and super flavorful. Happy Hour beer was just $3.00 in a tall glass . Just great! We will for sure go back!

p.s. the two igloos outside looked so fun!!!!! Would love to try them sometime.

It was soooo crowded and I asked for a booth for 4 of us on open table and we ended up at a table in a back room filled with large family gatherings and the lights were so bright I felt like I was at McDonalds play area for the kids. We had 3 different people come to our table and no one knew what the other was doing. When one of the waitresses asked for our drink orders and 2 of asked for tea, she looked at us like"really?" and did not even ask what kind of tea, when she brought it , I asked what kind and she told me a black tea and I can't drink such a highly caffeinated drink so late in the day... this is the first time I have not been asked what kind of tea. Then when I asked the waitress what kind of tea it was and she told me I asked her what other kinds she had and she listed off about 5 kinds..... I was really IRKED that she took it upon herself to just decide for herself what kind of tea we should have.... I wish we had not tipped her so well

The food was amazing! However, when adding a side (beyond the one that comes with it) to your already -$13-16 burger a $5.00 charge seems quite steep...so a burger becomes $18-21!
$5.00 as an appetizer...no problem...just a bit of a shock...we will share next time!
