We visit this restaurant when we are in the area. The menu is extensive, making it sometimes difficult to make a decision. The food is always good, plentiful and cooked to order. The desserts are huge and decadent#

Very limited hours. The food was great. Only problem we had was the one hour wait. We made 12:00 reservations. Arrived on time. Waitress took our order right away. Then we waited exactly one hour to get our food.

I'm not 100% sure of exact amount, but I think it would be about 50-60. It was a smaller restaurant but it was very lovely.
