Nice quiet location for dinner. Good ambiance. Excellent food and service.

Have eaten there numerous times for dinner or lunch. Excellent service. Excellent food. A great place to visit as the staff does not hurry you. Good to visit with friends, great couples location. I particularly like the booths.

We ate there about a dozen times in the past few years. We would have went more often if we lived closer, and I didn't drive as much as I did for work.
