Great meal

As always, this restaurant is a great value with good food. I had the scallops, spinach salad. It has fresh cut mango and pineapple, and a mango pineapple vinaigrette dressing. Always delicious. Had dessert to celebrate our anniversary. Can never wait to go back.

My wife and I stop in for dinner on Sunday February 7. Great food, fair pricing and a first class waitress by the name of Mandie. Make sure to place this place on your bucket list.....ask for Mandie.

My husband and I recently had lunch here and ate in their bar / pub. It seemed to have locals here enjoying the happy hour lunch and food specials.
