The view–gorgeous. The pizza—divine. Take a moment and stop by the Merchants River House. If you are looking for casual ambiance, American fare, and a view you can show off to your visiting mother-in-law, Merchants River House is your place.

The prices have dropped, but the quality remains, the Downtown Express reports.
