Never disappointed with any aspect of a favorite, locally owned, restaurant of mine; that shows genuine care and appreciation to their guests and community. Impressive for every occasion, or make any occasion impressive. Comfortable elegance-My favorite thing. Reservations are not required; but a good idea.
