Good value, and the food was excellent, although we chose to go on an evening when there was one set menu. Still, it was first class!

We opted for simple dishes, a warm beef salad followed by coffee and amaretto sundae, which were good. Menu had burgers and hot dogs, fair amount of fish although, Crab Risotto was not available that day, but there was something to... More
