Interesting selection of food in stunning atmosphere. Decor is gorgeous, service quite good. Food is above average, plating suboptimal, price fair. We had a great brunch with another couple. Would definitely go back again!

We thoroughly enjoyed brunch here and eagerly returned one evening for dinner. Unfortunately dinner was a disaster, our waitress was clearly new and had no idea what she was doing doing and the food was local country cooking at best, which just wasn’t all that....More

We had dinner after a long day of driving. The service was great and so was the food. I had the chicken kabob and some great beer (bourbon barrel I think). Fun talking with staff.

I found the experience average (at best) given the wait time for the food, mistakes with the order, and the cost. I would not recommend this given the other options. Although they did reduce my bill by $2 for the fries that never came, it...More

We stopped here for after dinner drinks. The decor is eclectic, which we enjoyed. Service was friendly and efficient. It was quiet when we visited, so conversation was easy. We loved sitting on the couches -- a nice change from usual restaurant seating.
