We had a sandwich and a salad but its more about the experience, the setting, the atmosphere. Its on a dirt road in the historic district right next to the train. Food was great and sitting on the outdoor patio was a delight!

Have met with several groups at this location...the menu is great and the access to the railway station and parking lot are perfect. The open air seating is perfect for meeting with four to six associates.
