This place is small but the food is great. The prices were on the high side. They have nice specials of the day.

“Good Food!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Food was very good and the hostess was extremely nice and we had a reservation so were seated very promptly! The service was slow and it was extremely crowded so it was very loud and hard to carry on a conversation! The food was excellent and we would return for that but at a different time so it would not be so crowded and loud.

“Fair to Middling”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had a reservation so were seated promptly. The host was friendly and everyone here had a smile. Very good, rustic atmosphere and comfortable seating and tables. The servers were very good, friendly, helpful and knew the the food and drink menus well. The food was nothing but average and I believe that's a generous assessment. My steak had excessive fat, was not cooked to order and was just plain rubbery. The sweet corn listed on the menu came out as creamed corn. Overall it just wasn't a good meal and the place is seriously overpriced. The only saving grace was the very good and friendly service.

“Great spinach salad. Ribeye not so much”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I really wanted elk, but had to settle for steak. I should have stopped at the spinach salad. It was enormous and delicious. The ribeye was just OK. My boyfriend's grilled ribeyes purchased from Costco are much better.
