We stopped on our way to south bend and had a great lunch out in the patio. The atmosphere was really cool inside but we couldn’t pass up eating outside when it’s 75 and sunny in October. I enjoyed my French dip sliders and sweet...More

Cheerful and attentive-but-not-hovering wait staff, pleasant patio area with heating against the chilly night air. Chicken Pot Pie in a puff pastry served steaming hot . . . exquisite! Pot Roast Sliders of shredded beef with caramelized onions and creamy horseradish sauce . . ....More
