My senior ladies group had lunch there & I had the spinach salad with the salmon added. Very tasty salad but pricy. I am trying to eat healthier so it was a good choice.

I cannot speak highly enough of the salads here with their "House" dressing - Hot Bacon and Honey Mustard is superb. The Nachos are a meal for two in itself. All food is prepared perfect and Service is great. Love the atmosphere too. If you...More
