We'd heard the burgers were very good and were not at all disappointed. Unfortunately that was the only great thing about the visit. Crowded tables and harried staff made this less relaxing than I had hoped. Draft beer serving size was tiny but still priced like a pint.

Eaten here several times. I've personally only ever ordered the Parmesan whitefish which is to die for but everyone I've ever been there with has been equally as happy with their dinners. Be sure to make reservations!!!!! Went on a Thursday night with reservations...however the couple ahead of us when we walked in was told there was a 30 minute... More

Understaffed for a weekend took over an hour to get our food from when the order was taken. Steak was over cooked and tough, the seafood salad had brown lettuce and processed seafood. Had to go inside twice to refill my water glass?

We have gone there for years. Back in the day, it was a very nice choice. This last visit was a bit of a disappointment. Food has little taste, no real seasoning. Waitress was basically clueless as to specials, etc. Not cheap for diinner for two, could use a refresh on the menu.

Everybody who came in after us got some service and food and we couldn't get a glass of water! Never to return again!

Went for breakfast with my husband and kids. We ordered when the restaurant was quite empty. Our food took over an hour to arrive with no apology and no percentage off our bill. Hash browns were cold, coffee refills were sparse. Not pleased at all with this place. I had referred this restaurant to others - no longer. Stay away!!

The food was very good but overpriced. Staff was friendly and restaurant was nice. We enjoyed everything, except for the final bill which I thought was more than it should've been for the experience we had.

I was traveling alone and it was nice to sit outside watch people go by ...it was a beautiful day. The food was a little pricey but that was expected in that area. The quality of the food was very good I enjoyed it immensely.

My husband and I should have known to leave after we waited more than five minutes for anyone to say anything to us. The restaurant wasn't busy. It was around 2pm on a Sunday. Many workers walked past us, but no one said they would be right with us or at least welcome to the restaurant. Finally someone asked if... More
