Food was awesome. Staff was very friendly. They seem to know their menu. Prices a bit high, but food was very good. But I would recommend this place for a nice lunch for a meeting.

The service and food was unbelievable. The dinning rooms are beautiful and the service and food was superb. The best part about our dinner was the price! As good as it was, I thought the prices would have been much higher.

This restaurant was actually recommended by a friend. All I can say is things must've gone downhill quickly. It's a magnificent mansion. Unfortunately, the restaurant has the atmosphere of a morgue. The woman who was the hostess could not have been more curt and unwelcoming....More

A 30 footer is going to be tough. Just getting up the drive may be a challenge. You may be able to find a spot on a side street, and walk. Call the restaurant, they may have some ideas.
