We came to this restaurant before going to Proctors...the decorations were lovely, the waitstaff were attentive and friendly and the food was YUMMY! Please see our photos. We do recommend reservations. Also, if the traffic is heavy, be attentive where you park, getting out of the parking lot and going left is fairly difficult in heavy traffic.

We were at a wedding here which was very nice. The food was very good (large portions). They had their banquet room decorated beautifully and the staff was very nice.

My husband and I recently attended a birthday party here. We enjoyed the buffet luncheon enough to make plans to come back again for dinner.
