“Second Visit a disappointment”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

After having enjoyed the food (despite slow service) on a prior visit, we returned to this restaurant with mixed results on both the food and service. Pizzas were pretty good, pork tenderloin was very good, but pastas were only fair. Several of our group were looking forward to having steak, as they had really liked it before. However, by 7:30 p.m., the restaurant was out of steak. Service was a little faster but very "spotty" - we had to request water, bread refills several times before they were brought. The order for one of our entrees was omitted.

“Pretty Good but Poor Service, Management Needs to Improve”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Restaurant was very busy and the waitress was overwhelmed and the manager should have sent help because she had a huge table beside ours and others. It took over 10 minutes just to get my iced tea. Then our appetizer was served to us cold and we had to ask for a refire on it but the waitress apologized many times and we could see it wasn't her fault. The pizza here is hand tossed and looks good. I had chicken parmesan and it was just ok and my husband had rigatoni with meat sauce and it was pretty good. They do have a children's menu here I think.

“One of the best options in the area”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food was good- nothing amazing. The prices are very reasonable, and the location is very good. We were staying in the park, where the food options are slim to none. It is a little bit of a drive, but we saw a moose and a bald eagle on the way- so that turned out to be a good thing, too!

If the weather is nice, sit on the patio- it is a great place to relax for the evening.

We do not have kids, but this would be a great place for families- there is a big lawn in between the two restaurants where kids can play. They even have toys available for them to play with. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching about 30 kids of all ages playing with soccer balls, etc.

“Great Meal and Outside seating”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Had a lovely meal outside on the porch. The food was good (pizza, soup, salad, steak), but service was a little slow. There was a wonderful, grassy area for kids to play adjacent to the veranda. There were soccer balls and a football for the kids to play with. Also, pretty garden to walk through.

“Poor Food, Poor Service, Low Value”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Prices were too high especially for a glorified pizza place. Service extremely slow - no apologies made by staff. Lasagna was obviously heated up but unknown how old. We do NOT recommend this restaurant for any reason.
