If you are looking to have a social function where you have to give the place a head count and they give you a price per head, do NOT NOT NOT go with this place. I was given a choice of 12 entrees to which we had 3 to choose from BUT you get NOTHING with that; no salad, no appetizers, no drinks, no desserts...NOTHING! Anyway, the entrees ranged from $15.99 to $22.00. The price per head was $25.00 which does not include tax or tip. Right there, that threw up some red flags. When you are bringing a lot of people to a place to eat, you usually get a discount, not get ripped off. I was going to bring 40 people there. If we all ordered the $22.00 menu item, that place would have walked away with $120. Go with anywhere else if you want to have a party there.

I was looking for a place to have my rehearsal dinner and I fell upon this restaurant. My fiance called and George and her discussed some of the options about the rehearsal dinner. We wanted to check the place out, however the day we were going to go there, he would not be there because it was a Sunday.
Sunday came and we went. It seemed nice from the outside and the inside was very nice. I went inside and was greeted very nicely by the bartender, Steve, and the second in command, Joan (I forget her title). The place was EMPTY. It being Sunday morning-afternoon, it made sense.
Steve and Joan talked with us for a bit about what we were looking for. We checked out the upstairs quickly. It was very nice as well. We ate there to try out the food. I had the Chicken Parmesan. The chicken was overcooked and kind of dry. The sauce tasted like it was from a can. My fiance had the crab cake (it was pretty big). That was delicious. Very little filler, the rest was scrumptious. We both got the same sides; potatoes and the vegetable of the day. It was good. The bad part about that was it took 25 minutes to get it. Remember, we were the only ones there.
After lunch (we ordered from the dinner menu) we talked about the rehearsal dinner. Steve and Joan lead us to believe that we could have either a buffet dinner (2 entree choices), order when we get there (3 entree choices), or pre-order (12 entree choices). Makes sense. We parted ways and with one more look at the place, we left. We were instructed to call George to finalize everything.
I called George the next day and we talked about the options. The pre-order of the 12 entrees was off of the table. We had 3 to choose from. He quoted me a price of $25.00 per head BEFORE taxes and tip. I asked what that entailed. He said we get the entree, a potato, and a vegetable. THAT'S IT! No appetizer, no soda, no dessert, nothing. For $25.00 dollars we get dinner entree and two small sides. I looked at the menu he gave us (which has no prices on it), and went to their website to get the prices of the menu items. The most expensive entree was $22.00. The least expensive was $15.99. If everyone ordered the most expensive entree, they would have made $120 off of us. If everyone ordered the least expensive entree, they would have made $360 off of us. WOW. No thank you.
When you go to a place for a big party, ANY PLACE, you get a discounted price. Every other restaurant in the area does that.(I checked) This place, not so much. They are ripping you off if you decide to have a party there. Steve is a great guy. Joan is a nice lady. George...well, that is another story all together.
I rated this place poor-fair because of this experience. Just remember, if the food took 25 minutes to get to us with no one there, how long it would take when it's busy.
