We were promptly seated and greeted by our server Michael. The menu is so extensive, that it took a while to decide what we wanted, but Michael was patient and gave us the time we needed. The food was plentiful, tasty, and reasonably priced.

I dined alone. I requested a table that wasn't in the middle of the floor. The host gave me a perfect spot in front of the fire. My order was taken right away. They weren't very busy, but it took nearly 20 minutes to get my food. I had the special, turkey, dressing, etc. Then when I was ready to... More

The 20 minute "WAIT" was only about 10 mins; not bad for the seasonal shopping RUSH. The place/service was "CCC," clean, competent, & cordial. MISSING, is the "C," for comfortable. We were jammed together, so that the adjoining table patrons, apologized for asking us to move, so they could get up. Probably is 1 too many tables squeezed along the... More

We were able to put to together a meal that was safe for him to eat, filled him up, and was reasonably priced. Over... More
