Service was wonderful. I had the rainbow trout. It was fresh and incredible. My husband had the Beef Wellington and said he chose wrong. It was too heavy for him. The rest of us loved our food. Great setting. Nice wine selection.

My wife and I sat near their fireplace and had a wonderful dinner. We started with escargot en croute, and caesar salad with their wonderful home made dressing. My wife enjoyed her Osso Bucco and I loved the Elk special

Great food and excellent service provided by Steve. All of our meals were delicious and everyone was pleased with their choices. I had the venison which was perfection. The ambience was wonderful and we had a great table by the fireplace.
