We love this restaurant. We have been there twice and found the food to be well prepared and have had very friendly service. The brussel sprouts are to die for!

I love this restaurant for a delicious traditional dinner or lighter fare on the patio in good weather. We always enjoy taking a drink or coffee to sit on the lawn before or after the meal. Quality is consistent and service is generally excellent.

My wife and I spent an intimate and delicious dinner Saturday evening. Maryanne ordered the filet along with the au gratin potatoes. I had a hankering for lamb and I was treated to a four rib rack with bordelaise sauce. Scrumptious. I also requested the...More
