After a lengthy wait, we have a fabulous dinner! Their dinner rolls are over the top. White pizza is excellent. And the desserts look excellent but there is no way you will have room for them.

My husband, 2 adult children and I had a delicious dinner and wonderful server. Our dinner was only ruined by the rudeness of the manager/owner and not having wine with my meal.
