Fresh, Good Food

We had lunch. The servings are so big we split the Big Burrito and which was plenty and very tasty. The staff was great and they are right next door to the Victoria Inn.

The menu has a lot of choice for everyone from Rib eye to risotto and the food was amazing, taste and presentation were perfect. Our server Cindy was lovely, she was kind and... More

Grounds and Firewood are near each other and apparently owned by the same people so when a group of friends and I entered close to 11am, some of us wanted breakfast and some of us wanted lunch. They change the menu to lunch at 11. Those who wanted breakfast ordered and the wonderful waitress went and got those of us... More

We had tried for several evenings to get to the place for dinner but the hours were limited. Went there on our last night and had a super meal. The food is very fresh and cooked... More

We stopped by on the recommendation of our concierge and it was worth it. My rib eye was cooked to perfection and my wife had ravioli that was soo good.

We ate breakfast & I ordered the "Build your own omelet" with sweet Italian sausage, three cheeses, zucchini, mushrooms & tomatoes. It was served with pico digallo (spell ?) seasoned with cumin and sourdough bread. It was the best tasting omelet I have ever had! My wife had oatmeal & she enjoyed it. We both had coffee that was good.... More
