Food was great! Serves so so. Was recommended the strawberry balsamic sorbet , 2 people ordered it ni was out of it. Don't recommend it so highly if you don't have it

It's about 15 minutes or so. It's also not too far from the Maine border.

We were able to get into the dining area without one, but it is not a large place, and we came in after the peak lunch hour. I would recommend calling ahead.
