“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We ate dinner on the patio and it was shaded and roomy. The service was attentive and all of our needs were met. A menu plus nightly specials should please most everyone. My mahi mahi and my husband's flat iron steak were done to perfection. Great coffee and a good wine selection.

“delicious coconut shrimp on the outside verandah looking at mountains”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

yummy coconut shrimp that actuatlly tasted of coconut - really really great. Calamari nice too and very generous size. The steak was also yummy and the burger fine too (too big though we took half home!)

sit outside, its really pleasant and the view of the mountains is beautiful if you have the right table. great service and you even get a mini loaf of bread to share, which is still warn when served. We were too full to even cut into it but it looked nice.

The food was very good. The paired wines the server recommended went very well with our dinner. We were able to make a reservation for a table on the outside patio. It overlooks the street and a little "garden" or grassy area between the restaurant and hotel. The interior decor reminds me of a Southern country restaurant.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I had salmon which was prepared to perfection. My wife had a pizza and it was most ordinary, save the fresh slice tomatoes on top. The atmosphere is nice and there is occasional entertainment on the patio, so make reservations and get an outside table on those nights.
