We booked a group of 35 people. The restaurant came highly recommended and I did quite a bit of communicating with manager in advance. They were unprepared for a group of our size despite their assurances up front. It took about 1 1/2 hours for...More

It's a great local place with regular customers and a home and family feel. They have nice wines and the food is always good. Comfortable, friendly not overly unecssarily fancy and it's sometimes just what I need.
