Have been several times and never disappointed! The menu has something for everyone and the portions are abundant. Prices are fair and the food is scrumptious. Staff has always been accommodating, knowledgeable and kind. No complaints about the service either. Recommend!

Went here for a birthday celebration. Food was ok. Told owner we were celebrating a birthday and were excited to try this restaurant. He seemed uninterested. Probably will not return.

The food is fabulous and reasonable. Waitstaff were personable and nearby, but not hovering, to meet our needs. Restaurant and restrooms are spotless and plenty of parking. We make the 40 minute drive often for an enjoyable evening.

Pretty much, yes. They have live music on Fridays, often a trio, usually jazz. I have not been there for music when it was some other kind.
