Riverbank Family Restaurant

With its idyllic setting and classic western meals, not much more could spruce up this traditional diner; apart from a handful of ghost stories. The restaurant is allegedly haunted by a former owner, who loved it so much that when he passed away, he decided to stay behind and look after his beloved establishment. Staff and patrons say the ghost is friendly, and often see and hear him wandering around the lower floor during the day. The spook also plays music on the jukebox in the main dining room with a catch; the songs played are 1950’s tunes not stored amongst the jukebox media.
