We visit 1481 about once a month-6 weeks. It is always good. They have good service, food and gluten free options. My favorite drink there is the Raspberry Amaretto Dacquiri. Keep it up 1481!

Called here tried and hungry near the end of a long road trip, and felt fortunate. Impressive menu, cordial service, comfortable surroundings. Excellent prime rib with good choice of sides. Local clientele. Lamb on the menu - local - will come back to try that.
