Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How much would it be for around 20 people to sit together and have Sunday Brunch (per person, including everything). I'm trying to organize a Bar Mitzvah weekend brunch on March 26, but need each to pay his own meal, and trying to connect guests to menu and invitation.

I would say $25 also. But they have a great room with a view. Call and ask for the room booker. Do a brunch, probably cheaper.
Are you open for lunch on Mondays?

I think only Supper. When I asked the phone it pulled up open 4-10PM but the website says 5-9PM. I think calling would be the best bet. 319-351-1904
