Always very good food and service. We've yet to dine indoors....outdoor deck is always where we go in the warm months, so that's the only thing on which I can comment.

Great place & they have an amazing variety of food selections. Once, when they didn't have a certain thing on the menu, they made it especially for us! YAY!

We ate in the dining room. We were only one of three other couples in this part of the restaurant. It targeted an older clientele. A little uncomfortable at first. It was kind of weird too that they didn't offer alcoholic beverages when asking for...More
