Hi, So sorry this happened to you. We pride ourselves in doing it right every time - after 400 Plus per day we must have slipped up - really apologize - will not happen again. Thanks Ron

Excellent food. It is an outdoor venue and was quite chilly when we went. I should have taken a jersey. The food is excellent and you can take your own wine.
