Very friendly hostess who was very considerate of where to seat folks for maximum comfort and privacy. The food was good but nothing spectacular.

The atmosphere is warm and charming. The service is friendly, professional, and attentive. The menu offers a diverse selection of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. We have been here numerous times and always thoroughly enjoy it - it is a treat!

Quiet Ambience but hectic service. Good appetizer and entree in the buffet. Dessert was excellent. Can't wait to try their dinner service.
