Maxson Riverside Restaurant

We traveled to Oregon, IL to try this restaurant.  The reviews were not great, but we decided to eat there anyway.  This restaurant has been here a long time, but I don't know the history as their website is being updated.

They offer sandwiches, but we came for their buffet.  Their lunch buffet is $8.50.  It included fried chicken, ham, Italian beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, salad, pastas and a few other items.  It wasn't a great buffet as far as the variety of food, but I really liked the chicken.  We were happy with the price.

The view from the restaurant is what most people talk about.

The view from our table.

As you can see, paddle boat rides are available.  There is also a motel next door. I bet at one time this was a destination for people.

The restaurant itself is dated and needs updating.  It doesn't look bad in this picture, but in person, it looks and feels old.

The staff was very friendly.  Jeff's credit card was charged incorrectly and it took a little while to fix it, but they were very apologetic and truly sorry for the mistake.

We will not be returning because while it was good, it was a long drive for us and not all that special.
