Rented restaurant for party of 65 people. Very good food served buffet style. Guests' favorite was the huge pork chops! Who would've guessed? Nice salads, lovely dessert trays.

The food and service are spot on. This is a great date restaurant. Not cheap, but worth it. Love the fish dishes.

Tucked away from busier Main Street, this is a great place for a quiet lunch or dinner. We were there for lunch. Excellent salads, sandwiches, etc. One of our party had the special lamb salad. Really enjoyed it. Service is attentive but not annoying. Will...More
