The restaurant was VERY nicely decorated in lovely Colonial motif. We had a great lunch. I had Michigan Cherry Chicken Salad wrapped in flat bread-delicious. My husband had their FIsh and Chips-also delicious. They make wonderful homemade chips and they have draft root beer-the best!

We went there for the Pot Roast, which is very good, however, if you go, have their BBQ Ribs! Over the top delicious!! Perhaps their best kept secret.........

I had the filet mignon and it was fantastic. Mashed potatoes were creamy and wonderful and the broccoli was steamed to firm and not mushy. Portions were small for the money but then I had room for dessert! Bananas Foster cheesecake was OUTSTANDING!!

Ask for Daniel (from Memphis) and order the whitefish. You will not be disappointed! Excellent service and great atmosphere.
