We took my out-laws, oops, I mean in-laws (HA HA HA) here for their 50th wedding anniversary dinner. We couldn't have picked a better place. The food was amazing, the service was on point and the drinks were great! What more could you ask for?

I ordered schnitzel with asparagus...never envisioned they would chop up the asparagus, put it into a creamy sauce and smear it over the deeply fried piece of meat. I immediately acted horrified when the server brought it out and he just shrugged and walked away....More
