Large and beautiful. Had Sunday lunch. Employees were respectful, friendly and performed their jobs generously and completely. So good, that we booked a room for a rehearsal dinner next March. Food was really good.

Service was terrible. Food just O.K. If all their waitresses are like the one we had they should fire them all and hire some that are willing to work.More

Met good friends on a Saturday night. Cozy, rustic place with excellent food. I had a blackened pork chop with asparagus spears and a salad. Others had steak and chicken. Everyone loved their food. Fireplace was on to allow the ambience. We will return.
