Although hazy the view of the mountains were pleasant. Decor was rather bland, however service was good. The scallops with prosciutto and the salmon was excellent. Wine list was adequate. Menu was varied from appetizers, to burgers to interesting entrees.

My husband and I had dinner after our round of golf. My cauliflower soup was so so, but I enjoyed the smoked chicken salad. The servers are polite and good at what they do. We would go back anytime.
