We enjoyed The butternut squash salad, filet done perfectly, salmon and a bottle of Salmon Run wine. Excellent service but overpriced.

For the price, you get a nice variety of breakfast items. Eggs, french toast, sausage/bacon, potatoes, variety of breads, cereals, fruit and sweets for $9.99. They have coffee, tea, and offer bloody mary's and mimosas. Can't go wrong for the price!

The last couple previous times had been very disappointing. But with great weather and an interest in eating on a deck, we decided to give this place another shot. Our server, Alana, was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We had the quiche of the...More
