We had dinner here recently. We could not sit outside (cold rainy weather) so sat inside. The service was average. Our waitress was friendly but had some problems describing the specials. She also made a mistake on our final bill; luckily we caught it before we paid. The food was good. My husband had the grilled pork tenderloin and I had the filet mignon. My husband raved about his tenderloin; he loved it. My steak was good. There is a fair selection of wines and a full bar for mixed drinks.
Our only complaint is the noise level in this establishment. The owners did not invest any kind of materials to absorb or quiet the ambient noise for the indoor dining. There were only a few diners there when we arrived so it wasn't bad. However, by the time we were finshing up our meal, the restaurant was pretty full and the overall noise level was much higher and somewhat disturbing. The ambience is more that of a neighborhood pub. The food is somewhat pricey for the ambience. I have heard that the live music here (only on certain nights of the week) is very good. I am willing to give it another try when the weather permits outdoor dining and on a night when the live music is available.

If you want to enjoy a beer on a beautiful patio after work, this is the place. Have not eaten here but once and it was good, but I really enjoy the outdoor seating and live music on Thurs-Sat evenings. Pretty good beer selection, good service, and plenty of parking.

This restaurant is a great place to go and sit outside and leisurely enjoy your meal in a beautiful setting. The ambiance indoors is cool to but the outside area is really nice. They even have live music on Friday nights. Good customer service, good food.

The patio dining is great, no matter what you order. The food is exactly what you expect plus a bit more. The people are friendly and everything looks clean and neat.

Have been several times. Once it was a perfect evening with great service and tasty food. Music was awesome. Another time for lunch service slow and grilled cheese offering was not really adequately grilled. Consistency is needed.
