There were enough gluten free options to make it hard to make up my mind what to order. That's not a common occurrence when I dine out. There were several tasty looking salads which you could add shrimp, chicken or steak to, as well as...More

Stopped in for lunch after visiting a local museum. Both hubby and I ordered the elk burger; it was delicious! Service was a little on the slow side, however, but we were not at all disappointed with the food.
