We had our 42nd anniversary dinner at our favorite restaurant. As always it was outstanding. The Salmon and Mahi-mahi dinners were top notch. The restaurant was decorated for Christmas. And we even had some carolers sing for us. You can’t go wrong with Hendels.

My first visit was a great experience. The food was tasty and graciously seasoned. The customer service was excellent and the atmosphere was busy. Enjoyed and will possibly visit in the future. The parking is not great. Overall, I do recommend for dining.

We ate in their garden, and it was delightful. The food was very good, very quaint place. Would be an awesome place if you have not been prior, or in a while. Thoroughly enjoyed it, the food, and the ambience of the garden.
