Delicious food and great service. Ordered half portion of salad and it was a very good size for a light dinner. Appetizers are also good for small meal options. Daily specials. Monday was steak night with delicious steak entrees at a very reasonable price.

Visited midweek on recommendation of B&B. Food was tasty. Portion sizes were just right for travelers who don't need doggie bags. Save room for dessert!

First and last visit to this resturant. They open at 4:00 we were the first in and no additional customers until 5:00. This is a very pricy restaurant for what you get. Food was OK not what you would expect for what it cost. The...More
