The food is well prepared, the menu is varied and the prices are acceptable. David, the owner, was club manager for several large country clubs in the Washington, DC area and has brought... More

Food is fair, at best, it's over priced and the wait staff is fair. Sunday buffet, however, is very good. Decent spread and good price.

Went there for dinner and was surprised by the cozy setting. The service was great but expected more out of the food, we ordered one pasta dish and one fish dish. They were both quite taste less and there was way to much sauce, which made it feel greasy.

Nothing like kicking back and enjoying a great meal in a cozy setting. Food is wonderful. The Sunday lunch buffet is worth it.

The food was mediocre, but this is obviously the best spot for locals to dine and chit chat. The service was exceptional. It's seems to be a great community restaurant to interact with each other.
