This restaurant located in an old hotel is an excellent choice for an evening meal. The filet can almost be cut with a fork and the sides are delicious. Don’t leave without trying the banana cream 🥧. We celebrate our anniversary here every year ❤️

Please read over the menu on line. Menus great but prices represent 60% of actual prices. Lamb price online $36.00 actual price $52.00.
