I have been here on many occasions over the past ~ number of years and no matter what I order, the food is wonderful. Every year I purchase a gift certificate for my husband as one of his Christmas gifts. He always looks for it!

I wouldn't consider this a "healthy" Restaurant but more like comfort food. Google and check out the Menu online to get an idea. There's quite a variety of food. Salads are great too. Enjoy!
