Was looking forward to having dinner here for my daughter's birthday. There was a "paint night" going on same night and the host had a microphone and was VERY loud. Food was watery and bland. Overall was not satisfied with my night.

We had a late lunch and only had to share the restaurant with a couple other diners. Quickly seated and staff and friendly. Food good and arrived in timely fashion. Nice view of pond. W/C assessable. We will return.
