Rude servers, slow service. I would never go back. Waitress was not flexible. Never even brought our salads! The worst treatment ever in a restaurant. I was so embarrassed to have brought our family here.

Delightful friendly waitress. Nice presentation of our fish dinner. The fish was cooked to perfection. The mashed red potatoes with skins were creamy even without gravy. The seasonable vegetables were not mushy. The best meal for our Columbus weekend get away.

Expect to get a good meal here. The menu offers a wide selection of good basic choices. The perch is excellent. Hamburgers are a good choice too. Our server was friendly, attentive and prompt. The outdoor patio is a pleasant option.

The best pan seared whitefish I have had in a very long time! The staff was friendly and able to answer question regarding gluten free options! Beautiful evening to enjoy the terrace seating. Will definitely return.

Dinner outdoors for 3 of us - when the waitress mentioned fresh trout, we all jumped on it. It was delightful - baked in a light bread coating. The portion was generous, served with smashed redskin potatoes & steamed squash. Very yummy & reasonably priced.
