We had a blast munching on comfort food and partaking in the karaoke. They did give our reservation away to another group but we were seated within 30 minutes.

Four of us dined here on a busy Sunday afternoon of a three day holiday weekend, and had a very pleasant experience. The menu had choices for everyone, food was excellent and service was prompt but unobtrusive. The restaurant has an "old time" feel and is very warm and comfortable.

We came in as a group and were seated promptly and our waitress was excellent. Orders were taken easily and food arrived promptly. There were seven at our table and she offered separate checks by couples without our having to ask.

I go here for an early lunch and for a leisurely dinner . The food is selections are more than adequate for this vegetarian and always delicious. Drink selections are abundant. I choose a crisp white wine and finish with a coffee with Kahlua. The "greeter" is a beautiful, shy, outdoor black and white kitty.

While staying at the Pine Woods resort - the hotel team suggested we would have dinner there. We were not let down! The food is good and there is a variety both for adults and children. The setting is rustic and homey. Nice place for a family dinner.

The bread is amazing! The food is freshly and simply prepared. Fresh tomatoe, basil and garlic on the angel hair pasta. Smokey, roasted tomatoe marinara on a fresh chicken breast. Can't wait to come back.

We had a delicious Christmas Day meal here. The beef wellington was very special & not often seen on most menu's. Sitting near the cozy fireplace on a cold winter day was perfect for the occasion.
