We went here for lunch and seated ourselves in an almost empty room. After a wait, we were "served" by an inexperienced, charm-free waitress who did not even know the menu. We ordered soup and waited 45 minutes with no service. No one came near us. We finally flagged down the waitress, who gave a flustered, incoherent explanation of why... More

Being gluten free we were a bit limited, but had their pork loin with onions, apples and maple syrup. It was delicious and a short walk from Inn Victoria where we were staying.

Had a wonderful meal apps, entree, dessert, and drinks for about $60. Nice sized portions, great quality, service friendly and not rushed, hosts were friendly and genuine. Lovely dining on the porch with nice folks walking by with smiles and greetings. Relaxing and good vibes all around.

Thank MARK J
