Table for four and we all had different appetizers and entrees. Everyone really enjoyed the meal. The service was attentive without the hovering you sometimes feel and even though they were full there was no pressure to dine and dash.

We’re on vacation and saw it had high reviews so we tried it. There’s a reason it has high reviews. Amazing food. Our server was very pleasant. Pork chop, short ribs, Gouda Mac and cheese, Brussel sprouts, and chocolate soufflé are all fantastic.
