Used to be a great local place to dine. Been going downhill over the years. Quality of food and management is disappointing. We won't be back.

Good soup, seafood platter with really big shrimp, scallops, frog legs and some Lake Erie perch. Pasta to go with this and nice bread basket. Good desert choices for a birthday dinner. Restaurant is 80 years old and they know what makes a good meal!...More
