We looked at it. It's the same place in the same building behind the same parking lot bend the same inn, etc. We thought it was closed, but it's not. We'll eat there next time.

Have eaten lunch outside on the deck and it was great. My favorite is Sunday afternoons. Charlie Holland and his band is so nice.
