The food and ambiance of this restaurant is excellent. The service is good with friendly staff. Very relaxing and you are not made to feel like you should rush your stay. The staff are very accommodating and our needs were met satisfactorily.

We had a lovely brunch at McLoones. Great location on a pond. In the spring summer and fall you can sit outside and enjoy the view. There are also fire pits and it is especially wonderful to have a drink with friends by the fire.
