Cozy and quiet. Love the fact that the menu changes as the seasons change. Fresh farm products purchased locally is important to a local like me. My husband and I visit often for special occasions and when hosting friends. Recommend highly.

I really like local. The ambiance and drinks are lovely but the food is very overpriced and I wasn’t blown away. Some people love it and still go but I’ve eaten at much nicer restaurants with more imaginative dishes but they’re not close by.
