Even though the Crownery recently had an issue with the health department, we were anxious to get back immediately and show our support. Although I never thought the place was dirty, it is now sparkling clean after the reopening after only 2 days shut down....More

We've stopped in at least a half dozen times this summer, and each meal has been great. We tend to try something different each time, and it's all been delicious. The portions are huge, so be prepared to have leftovers for lunch the next day.
