As the website states,”Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you. To keep the chain of gifts alive, we invite you to pay it forward for those dine after you.”. This is a unique eatery who amazingly still trusts in their fellow mankind. Pay what you can afford. If you can pay more then don’t be a scrooge, give a little extra and help the next guy or gal out. Some people just cant find a break no matter how hard they try so your generosity will be truly appreciated. Awesome food with an equally awesome staff.

Retrace Huckleberry Finns footsteps along the mighty Mississippi River from the comfort of one of the last great American Steamboats still in existence.  This is an awesome way to relax and see some amazing scenery.  Food and beverages are also available for your munching pleasure.  Bring a fishing rod and if you ask nicely the Captain might let you fish off of the back of the boat, but probably not, so just leave it at home on second thought.
