You walk into this restaurant and know you are in a friendly excellent venue. The food is delicious, perfectly prepared, and served piping hot. The server could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Granted we were there off-season, but even in busier times, we have experienced the same wonderful warmth and efficiency. We have ordered from a range of... More

Been to the restrauant many times but this will be our last. The food was uninspiring and poorly seasoned. The Easter dinner was dull and poorly seasoned. The rib eye and lamb shank were served with French fries. No other options. The only things that were acceptable was the salad and desert. Whoever was cooking needs to go back to... More

We stopped in for lunch and were greeted warmly and given a choice to sit in the dining room or the tavern. We chose the tavern side, it was so cozy and inviting. If we were staying in the area, we would have loved to sit at the bar for a drink. Our bartender/server, Ally, was great. She was informative... More

I brought a motor coach with 28 last Friday evening. What a pleasant evening! From the friendly greeting, the warm atmosphere and attentive servers, we couldn't have asked for more!

We were greeted warmly by the hostess and guided to a nice table so five of us could have lunch. The server (Josh) was personable and friendly. He also knew the menu.
