I visited the restaurant for curbside pickup recently. The general manager delivered the food to the car not wearing any type of face covering, as I was fully masked for his safety during this pandemic. I was also informed the company, Heart of America, doesn't...want the image of employees wearing masks or other PPE and an employees was fired for wanting to wear a mask. The salmon blt was also very soggy and oily which couldn't be finished.More

The waiter (Russell), really set the tone for he evening. I went there with my wife for dinner. We were seated immediately and a drink order was right behind that. So nice to have a waiter ask if you wanted time between receiving your drinks...and the meal coming. Most places rush you right through dinner. Salads and entree came nicely spaced apart too. Russell checked on us a fee times through the course of the meal to make sure that we had everything we wanted. My wife had the Caprese Cavatappi with salmon and I had a rack of ribs and substituted roasted rosemary potatoes for the fries. My wife just kept saying how good every bite was. My meal was equally as good. Really nice evening with the best waiter maybe ever. Thanks Thunder Bay.More

Last minute decision to have dinner with good friends. Had about a 15 minute wait to be seated, but had a place at the bar. I had the ribs and while they are usually quite good, these were disappointing. Not as tender as usual and...had a lot of very tough meat. Others in the group had steak and shrimp and they said it was good.More

We were looking forward to having dinner here but was disappointed. Ordered steak flatbread appetizer. Couldn’t find any steak on the flatbread. Thin dried out unknown meat . Drinks were skimpy and short on liqueur. Husband had a hamburger which was less than expected. Won’t...be back.More

The meal was very tasty and plenty. The surroundings contribute to an intimate but not intimate atmosphere. Their Sunday Brunch is the best in town. There are many items to please the discriminating palate from breakfast to dinner with champagne mimosa, if that is to...your liking. You will be delighted with your favorites and more.More

My husband and I went here on the recommendation of the desk attendant of the hotel where we were staying. We were seated and our waiter was at our table immediately. Both selections were very good. Very nice atmosphere.

Just moved to the area and we are searching out restaurants. Saw this on line and decided to try. Picture of cozy seating area around a fireplace somewhat misleading. The place is very large inside and feels a little barn like. Requested a booth which...definitely helped. Very typical old time menu which I'm sure many find comforting and appealing. Limited wine selection. Our meals were good, very basic meat potato vegetable. Service was excellent.More

I checked their website and could not find any, nor did I see any on their menu. Therefore the suggestion to call them would be best.
