Enjoyed soup and sandwich lunch. Everything was fresh and so good. Homemade chips with ranch dressing made the meal complete. Too bad we weren't hungry enough for entrees, what we saw looked great. Will definitely return.

Visited the week before Christmas and the decorations were lovely. Portions were huge and we could not eat it all. The brie cheese appetizer was good and hubby said the wings were on his top five of all time! Great service as well.
