We came here on an anniversary trip on the recommendation of our inn keeper. Couldn't have made a better choice. Absolutely delicious from the appetizer to the sinful dessert. You won't go away disappointed or hungry.

We have eaten here many times and during holiday specials. Also have a pool and outdoor bar for entertainment. A little expensive, but worth it. If dessert is your thing, have the carrot cake.
