“A GREAT Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had Valentine's Day luncheon here, and found the food delicious, the wine very good, and the service excellent. Waitstaff were welcoming and friendly, we seldom had to wait more than a minute or two for anything we needed or for questions to be asked. We will be back!

“have to go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

The first time I went here I had ordered the chicken wrap which was ok. My friend who suggested we go here ordered the mango stuffed chicken. I tried one bite and I was in love. I came back the following week w/ 2 other friends so I can get my own dish this time. My friends of course loved it as well. It comes w/ a side of potatoe au gratin which is so yummy and also side of tastey grilled veggies. Be warned that this is a hearty dish but oh so worth the calories. It's a huge portion so I had left overs for lunch the next day. Large portions make up for the price. We also had to try their white chocolate bread pudding. If you like Ruggles Green's bread pudding, you will love this as well. I have been back several times when I get a craving for the mango stuffed chicken. Writing this review is making me want to go back again.

“Deserves more”

Love the place. Consisting the quality of food this place deserves much more attention. Mango chicken is fantastic. Their kabobs are very good & the lemon butter plates are amazing as well.

“trying new things”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Im not sure how this place got such a great rating, but here goes. There was no hostess at the door, was asked to seat myself by the bartender, no problem. chose a cozy booth, which are plentiful. Waiter came with menu right away, I wanted a beer but the bar seemed very limited and there is nothing on tap. I had pecan crusted salmon as an entree, it was great, was a pretty big meal so come to this place hungry. Overall this place is clean, good food and good service, there is room for improvement when it comes to the beer selections. I passed on the dessert as it was very pricy.
