Having wanted to celebrate my retirement, I elected to go to this restaurant due to the location close to other family members. We had ordered the asparagus appetizer. It was ok. We then elected to order some pasta dishes, chicken and Lake Perch served only on Friday's. The first thing I always check when the food is served is the temperature of the food being served. I like my fish served hot, not just a little warm. It was warm to hot. Not a plus for me. The mashed potatoes served with my meal were also a little warm, not hot. The only thing served at a great serving temperature, were the vegetables served with the meal. The lemon chicken dish was nothing to special. At the end of our meal, I felt as though they wanted us out of here. Staff was removing our dishes even before almost finishing our meal. Lastly some of us wanted to take a little leftover home with us. The staff took our plates away from the table and place our food in containers somewhere in the facility. I want to see what I am taking home and not something taken to a back room. I was ready to throw it out when we got home. Other than that, this is just a fair restaurant at best. They will need to step it up a notch for me to return. There are just too many other restaurants that can provide a better meal and better service.
