I don't know where the Ark Al name came from, but I probably wouldn't have eaten here because I am not a beef eater. But I am really glad I did! My friend had steak, which he said was excellent, as was the trout that I had. The salad was fresh and delicious, and the homemade bread was to die for! I was disappointed in the choice of wine by the glass, which was served in a small cheap wine glass. I didn't have dessert, but I did look at the menu, and wasn't too impressed with it. This really didn't matter to me though, as I no room for dessert anyway. Our server, Frank, was very attentive and friendly, but of course, it wasn't very busy. The views from the almost 360 degree windows were wonderful. The prices were reasonable and it was nice to have a 10% discount because we were staying in the motel. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
