It never fails to provide a top rate meal. Everything is always perfect. We regularly eat here and then step out and listen to the concert on the bandstand. My guests always want to come back and eat here each year.

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
