I've ate here several times, Brett has a great menu but there's always something seasonal he has going. Wait staff is great, they get busy but do their best to accommodate everyone. Their Ribeye is cooked to perfection every time.

This place has a fantastic menu. Fresh trout, delicious local lamb chops and a good knack for soups. Waitstaff is friendly, but distracted. Misques on the orders, nothing serious, but definitely annoying. Good beer selection, if the staff brings you the beverage menu. Lamb was...More
