I really enjoyed my first visit this morning for brunch. This is a beautiful eatery sort of off the beaten path, but worth the effort to get here.Lunch and dinner seven days and brunch on the weekends. Lots of Italian items on the menu. Live entertainment nightly. Service is very good.

Man, that was good. The question is, will I have the strength of character to try something new the next time, or will I just order the amazing baked ziti with the most incredible marinara e-VER and save myself the time and trouble of choosing among the 7 or 8 other things I wanted to try? And the waiter was a typical, redneck-looking good ol' boy - until he pulled out a guitar and sang us a song. Wow! If I'd've had a Bic, I'd've flicked it. He should sing the menus. If he sang, "Do you WANT a frog-lip SANDwich?" I'd holler, "Yes. Yes, young man, I'll take two."

Great place. Go. eat! (No - sorry, there are no frog lip sandwiches. But if there were...)
