Overall this restaurant is good but for an elderly crowd who likes the quite, Down Key atmosphere. Nothing exciting here to say the least. Prices were rather pricey for what we received but average.

I would call the restaurant to confirm. When we were there it was crowded and we had to park in a secondary parking lot across the road. The lot was uneven and could be a problem depending on the disability
