Some pluses were good service, an outstanding minestrone, ample portions, excellent cornbread, and pleasant atmosphere. The major minus may be due to a personal taste. I do not enjoy a vinegar based sauce on my Texas BBQ and this one was very vinegary. Our main...goal was to enjoy the last meal of a vacation with good, very good friends. The R R's R was up to the task and we appreciated the effort to serve our needs.More

We had their Wednesday Italian night dinner! It was excellent! The eggplant parmigiana was superb. My husband had the sausage and ravioli, he really enjoyed it!

Short and sweet. The service was great. The food we ate was loved by our friends but we felt it was just ok. Dinner started with salads for 3 of us and home made soup for 1. The salads were nice but a bit light...on the dressing. The soup , I was told, was very good. We all got the Chicken parm ( Thursday is Italian night) and a side of meatballs. We all felt the meatballs were kind of rubbery although the taste was ok. 2 in our party really loved the chicken parm but the other 2 of us felt it was just so so. I personally felt the chicken was a bit tough and that the pasta overcooked. The sauce tasted a bit bitter and kind of tomato paste heavy to me. I ended up with heartburn later that night and still had it the next day.. You will probably either love this place or think it was ok but not worth a special trip to get there.More

The restaurant was so clean. The staff extremely attentive. The food was delicious. We had the cajun prime rib and 1/2 rack of ribs. Loved every bit of it. Waitress was wonderful. Will definitely return to this restaurant.

Both spouse and I enjoyed the food here a lot. Three meat plate (pulled pork, beef brisket, and ribs were our three choices) was excellent ($23.50) with a slice of cornbread (nice and sweet, a bit crumbly, but very good), salad, baked beans and cole...slaw (our choices - very good as well). Blue cheese dressing was 50 cents extra and worth it. Hearty, good-sized portions of meat. Large salad with beef brisket on top also very tasty (~$11.). Enjoyed the sweeter bbq sauce on the ribs and pulled pork (we were given a choice) better than the tangier which came automatically on the brisket. Very good service; wasn't crowded on a Sunday evening around 5:30 p.m..More

If you are looking for great BBQ and other dishes this is the place to go. It is a beautiful ride up RT. 97 on the Delaware River in Sullivan County NY. The place is small but the food and service is great. They have...a nice bar and a patio with great service. It has been there about 3 years but the owners have been in the Restaurant business for 3 generations. An Oasis in the middle of no where but a beautiful ride.More

I dine at this establishment often. Never have I been disappointed. Rich and Mary run this place right! The food is top notch and there is something available for everyone; this is my favorite go-to restaurant when bringing guests out to eat. A beautiful ride...along the Delaware and then the friendly and reasonably priced meal. Well done!!More
