    The steak salad is awesome if you like spinach and piles of cholesterol. And if you don't its still awesome.

    The croissants are amazing. You get a lot of food for the money but the tenders and alfredo were bland.

    Do not use the blue liquid in the bathroom to wash your hands with. If you did not need to be told it's mouthwash than you are smarter than I am. My hands are minty fresh though :)

    Good place for happy hour: $2.25 house liquors. It's where all the nursing students hang out on Tuesdays after tests lol.

    Solid filling menu. Awesome view. And the least appropriate name for a restaurant with Civil War trappings. Check it out!

    Deck seating on the water - first come, first served, entry on side. View of the city, with amazing fireworks show on other side of river if the baseball team wins. Cool after sunset on a hot day.

    This downtown restaurant on the water is a must! Order the California Dreaming salad with the house dressing and you will be in heaven. Watch dolphins and ships as you leisurely enjoy the food and atm
