“Wonderful Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I had the most amazing Roasted Garlic Sweet Potato Soup for lunch! I am going to try and replicate it, it was that good. Five of us for lunch, everyone enjoyed their meal, & nothing was ordinary. Service was excellent, the only reason this got a Very good and not Excellent was the chairs could have been more comfortable. We stayed and lingered with family had not seen in many years.
