We had to wait for a table even though staff was plenty and there were many empty ones. The food was very good and well cooked. We thought that the interior lacked charm and that they could offer an outside dining to improve the experience.

We do not take reservations however, we do like a "heads up" when a large party is coming in. Please call the restaurant to discuss further when we open for the season. Thanks for contacting us.
