"Just across the river from Louisiana, MIssouri...the best food, drink, and spectacular view of the Mississippi River and the only
Lighthouse on the mighty river's navigable inland waterway length."
What's New?

Our website is new!!! We have been listening to our customers requests and we
have decided to incorporate the world wide web to
"Get-The-Word-Out" about our
restaurant and all that we have to offer the area for our locals and tourists alike.

The new wireless
"internet lounge" is a hit with our business clients....just bring
your laptop and
Surf-on-the-Mississippi. Biker parking and "Bloody Mary"
Sundays make this spot a favorite for the weekend poker run.

Our new menu along with our
friendly wait staff and "seasoned" (no pun
intended Terry)
chefs create award winning meals that are mouth watering and
reasonable priced to create a friendly place to dine and relax while enjoying the
panoramic view of the Mighty Mississippi and all it has to offer.

Reservations are never required and the dress code goes with the season... from
"three piece suit to a bathing suit"...and we are not kidding! On special holiday
periods it may be good to call ahead if you have a large group that may need extra
special attention and set-up. New menu items are always coming out of the
kitchen while Steve and Pat bring back favorite menu items from their travels to the
Our Business...

Steve and Pat Miner, captain and first mate, owners, proprietors, host, hostess,
mixologist, chief cook, bottle washer, and
"last one to lock-up the barrel" ....
(need we say more), are always on hand to attend to their customers every need.

In business over 10 years and have we thrown some parties at our once world
famous outdoor
"Tiki-Bar", we have settled back to a more peaceful paradise to
wine and dine our customers. Their staff is about as loyal as their
customers...we see the same smiles and faces on our customers and staff
because Steve and Pat make sure
EVERYONE is having a good time. "Shot's
I'll drink to that!!!

We especially cater to our boater and biker friends..."did we forget to tell you"?
We are located right next door the nicest marina on this part of the Mississippi
River. Need some
"HOT" wings or the Captain's Bucket-O-Chicken for that float
trip down the river on your way to the sandbar?  Call us and we will have it ready.
We have even seen some special occasions where it was delivered right to your
boat slip. So tie up, stay awhile and enjoy some of the best food, drink, and
hospitality this area has to offer.
