This restaurant completely lives up to all of its reviews. Owners are friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. If you're willing to be flexible, I recommend going with their recommendations where ever possible, although I also imagine you probably can't really go wrong here...More

The food was wonderful. You can choose your meal off the menu, or have the kitchen create a dinner for your table (which is what we did) . Everything brought to our table was delicious!
