Went for lunch with a friend and was so impressed by the food and service! Had an appetizer of teriyaki pork ribs ... amazing, tasty and so meaty! The salmon and roasted vegetables were the best I've ever tasted. You won't be disappointed!

I have taken clients there for a lunch and refreshment, easy to get into, great food and service. Fun to promote a local brewery as well. Also had attended a friend's wedding there, it was a fabulous venue!
