We were 18 from the local Probus Club and they knew well in advance that we would be a group but no accommodation had been made for this in the kitchen. So, while the food was generally good, it took at least an hour for...More

We have been here many times, they have a small dining room overlooking a working marina. The food is great, prepared from scratch and worn a trip out. The parking can be an issue, but there seems to be spots to park spread out so...More
