Midwest Living Review

Cynthia Earhart
This cozy spot with great river views serves fairly predictable lunch and dinner fare at a reasonable price.

Housed in an old brick building right across the street from the Ohio River, you couldn't ask for a better location, and the views from the front porch and dining room windows are lovely. Hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, cafe curtains and heavy woven tablecloths give it a simple Colonial look, although a little more decoration, maybe some paintings on the walls, would give it a more polished appearance. While we hoped for some home-style cooking to go with the atmosphere, the menu instead listed the usual burgers, salads, sandwiches and the like (lunch dishes all under $10). In a nod to the South (well, southern Ohio), we tried the fried catfish sandwich with sweet potato fries, which came in a plastic basket and was served with a sweet relish tartar sauce and, strangely, a barbecue sauce. Service in the small dining room was casual and a little slow considering we were the only diners.
