Awesome food & a beautiful view. We loved this place. Outdoor dining. Dogs running around, kids running around -- very comfortable Tuscany-like setting. Highly recommend!

We stopped for lunch while travelling through, there were lots of families with kids and dogs (we have neither !) all enjoying themselves out in the country. The food was good and milkshakes especially tasty. Would recommend
