Worth a short drive from Saugatuck. Everything was great! Service, food, wine, ambiance, they even welcomed our dog as we dined on the patio. Something for everyone. Buddha salad was excellent. Highly recommend. Everything we tried was delicious. Thanks for a wonderful experience Giovanna!

I don't know about Sunday prime rib dinners. I'd recommend contacting the restaurant. Yes, reservations are accepted. For directions, I used a Google Maps smartphone app which worked perfectly.

Yes. There is a private dining room. When you walk in it's immediately to your right. We were there during prom and it was booked with a group. I'm not sure how may it seats. It was probably around 10 people.
