It depends on what you order. We have a variety of sandwiches, pasta, chicken, seafood, burgers, and steak. The least expensive item would be a sandwich for $6.99 and the most expensive would be filet mignon for $26.99.

We do have a bridal room. It is the same size as our standard rooms but has more modern furniture, bed linens, and a wall mounted flat screen tv.
