This moderately priced restaurant is my favorite spot to celebrate anything. The food is always good, the atmosphere pleasant and the service excellent. Chef Mattison is also to be commended for the support he offers non-profit organizations in our community.

We stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was outrageously delicious! Staff were very pleasant. Chef Paul even came out & spoke with us. We even splurged on dessert & it was heaven. Perfect spot & I highly recommend!!
