Had a good meal here. The place was busy but we were seated fairly quickly. Our food was fresh and there's lots of decor to capture the imagination of little ones.

The salad was amazing and the early dinner deals we a good value. Nice table by the fire place and great service! I got the Chicken Marsala and my son got the basil pasta. The place was packed at 5:45. So you know it's gotta be good.

Stopped by on a Sunday walked in and was seated immediately, the fireplace was going and was a very nice atmosphere and up to date. When we got ready to order a lot of things that were on the menu they were out of stock so we were very limited on what we could order. Honestly I was very surprised... More

Had dinner here, food was what you would expect, and it was a little expensive, but the waitress was outstanding, and the atmosphere was quite charming.

Thanks for your review. We try to price all of our menu entrees reasonably, however we're a steak house and steak and great beef are a lot more expensive tfor us to buy than pasta and salads. Glad you had a goof time. More

We were looking for something good to eat after a long day on the slopes. We had picked J. Arthur's before our trip and had been reviewing the menu online: we saw that reservations were suggested so we were able to make some for later that evening. We arrived 20 minutes early and were taken straight to a table. Our... More

We stopped in for lunch while on a family vacation over Christmas and the food and service were so great that we went back for dinner a few nights later. The menu had many choices that appealed to everyone in our party, from adults to kids. We would recommend the gorgonzola cheese salad and prime rib. Our kids loved the... More
