Place been around for years, always crowded, a wide array of selections. Our server Jennifer was simply fabulous, handling a party of 12. Scott Bryant oversees this operation, a true professional. The scallop rissotto special was top notch.

We have been eating here for the last 20 + years and have always enjoyed the food quality. They always seem to have specials that are different and very tasty. The service is very good as is everything else.
