The staff were great, the food was excellent. The view was breathtaking. Only one bathroom on the second floor where our party was located. This was a drawback as was the bar on the first floor.

This is the best view in town, a panoramic from on high! The food is ordinary at best. Best time to visit us a summers evening on the terrace.

The chicken was terrible. Overcooked and so dry. I had heard so many wonderful things about this restaurant and was anticipating a great meal. I definitely won't be back.

I've eaten here several times and have never had a memorable meal. The view is nice, though. Every time I've been here it's because I've been with someone that always wanted to eat here.

I have seen dogs on the outdoor patio. If it's a big dog, you might want to call ahead and make sure they're not too busy.

We have guests that wear shorts, some that dress up, and almost everything in between. As long as you're comfortable.
