One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half right with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fare and wine at Edgewater Grille in downtown Newburgh. Nestled high on the banks of the Ohio River, Edgewater Grille serves up a variety of contemporary American menu items, including wood-fired brick oven pizzas, fresh seafood, pasta, sandwiches, and more. Choose from entrees such as the catfish fiddlers ($14.99), breaded and served with a trio of coleslaw, fries, and hushpuppies; or opt for the classic Italian tricolored tortellini ($14.99) ripe with cheese and tossed in a creamy portafino sauce. Cozy up to the mahogany bar, or sip a glass of chardonnay on Edgewater Grille's charming patio while enjoying an unobstructed view of the river as it splashes beautifully and embraces glimmering sets of tossed car keys.

- Those who have eaten there regularly don't have to work hard to remember Schen's food. – Rebecca Coudret, Evansville Courier & Press
- The view is utterly spectacular. Then again, it’s such a great looking restaurant inside, the view’s spectacular in there as well. This is one of those places where you almost find yourself looking for a negative amongst the pluses – just to mix things up a little. If there’s a negative, I haven’t found it yet. – Joi, Genuine Kentucky
