Had a pasta dish for dinner, they offered nice specials of the day also. Food was good and reasonably priced my husband had perch, which is usually only served on Fridays, but was able to have made for him on Saturday evening

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions. For lunch, dinner and for a wedding and baby shower. Each time, the atmosphere, food, wait staff and availability of the rooms available has been very accommodating.
