Everyone in our group was happy with their brunch selection. If you have a large group be sure to call ahead and reserve a table since the restaurant only has room for one large table and rest are tables or booths for 4 people max.

We would like to have a bridal shower at your restaurant on Sunday June 30 from noon until 2:30. or even start at 11 AM. About 15 ladies- age 25 and older. plan lunch. If nice, would like to sit on the patio overlooking the water. Would you be able to do this? Thanks, Ann
