I'm so disappointed to give this poor review. I have dined at this restaurant a number of times over the past 20 years. On this trip the highlight was a mushroom dumpling soup that was excellent. It was a great recipe executed well. That is what brought the score UP to a two. The server was friendly, but it was... More

I know the people that are here crusading RE: The Service Dog Issue are feeling like they're doing the world a service by "outing" this terrible person. Would you mind reading a couple paragraphs on these type of crusades? 1st there seems to be some dispute over what happened. Are you comfortable writing scathing reviews of these people and their...

Refused a disabled owner and legitimate service dog. Owner blatently stated that they did not care they were breaking federal law when challenged.

The owner openly discriminates against disabled customers who use service animals. Horrible business and vile owner!

Management refused my friend service because she had a service dog. They said they would only allow service dogs for blind people. That level of uneducated insensitivity is utterly mind-blowing in today's society.

This owner refused service to a customer aided by a certified assistance animal. They left visibly upset after being told that only leader dogs for the blind were allowed and that the owner was refusing to serve them unless the animal was removed

Refused service to someone with a service dog. Owner stated that only dogs leading the blind are allowed. When called and asked how long does she plan on breaking the ADA act, she replied with, "as long as I own this restaurant!" And hung up.

Had the Cod lunch/dinner that was very good. Breaking on the fish was not too thick, and it cme with salad bar and choice of potato. Salad bar was excellent with homemade potato salad, tuna salad, three bean salad, marinated mushrooms, cole slaw, and all the usual salad fixings on a well stocked salad bar.
