Several people recommended this restaurant to us for the food and entertainment. A reservation is a good idea. We sat on the bar side and had a tasty variety of starters. The atmosphere is great and the service outstanding and friendly!

We had a very nice dinner here, our Inn keepers suggested this place and sure glad they did. The service was good as well. We ate on the bar side, but was still very good. A little pricey, but will return

Food was quite good and the staff was super attentive. It was pretty busy on the Friday night that I visited. I would think it gets slammed during the season.
