Just awful! Ordered the so called award winning Ribs, I don't think so!! I won't even feed them to my dog. Service was terrible from the moment we walked in. Another couple arrived right after us, I watched them order, get drinks, appetizer & salads...More

Recently had dinner with friends here and eat here at least once a month. Enjoyable, quiet and relaxing atmosphere, with updated decor and a great wine room for entertaining small to medium sized groups. Loved the Pasta dish with grilled shrimp.....will go back for more!...More

This is a remarkably good restaurant. We had extremely well prepared meals and at a very reasonable price. The tuna appetizer was so large we went away with half of it for later. The roasted hen was remarkably good.
