Great to take reservations. Very quick seating. We were seated up stairs. I think more quiet and easier hearing conversation. Had been seated three other visits on the main level. Very good selection. Good variety.

We stopped for lunch while taking a North House course. We split a rueben sandwich which was excellent. The eating area is small but there is seating outside which is comfortable.

I believe the lamb shank was on the menu when we were there in July, but I think a phone call would be a good idea! Sometimes menus change with the season.
