The restaurant was lively and welcoming with a range of food items to choose from that were all elegantly prepared. Leave room for dessert, they were amazing!

The waitress went out if her way to accommodate our group! Her suggestions were right on the mark! Some of our group was dressed up and some were in shorts. All were welcome and comfortable. ~Sue Macomb, Michigan USA
