Delicious meals for our party of 9. Board games/card that you can borrow and play if you want to. Families and couples. Vegetarians and meat lovers were all satisfied.

The service is a bit slow but the food is worth the wait! Had the seasonal salad with roasted beets and leeks and it was delicious. Lots of different sandwiches and other items to choose from - all carefully prepared and yummy.

We brought our two teen boys for an early New Year's Eve dinner this past Saturday night and had a fantastic time! The food was outstanding! My boys gobbled up their fried fish sandwiches, my husband's Reuben was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the salmon....More
