We really enjoyed our meal with a variety of choices: lamb, salmon, trout and osso bucco were some of the luncheon specials, plus you had a choice of spinach soup or salad. The soups are always wonderful and freshly made, not creamy.

Don gave you a good answer. But, hey, why don't you just call the BCC and ask all the questions you may have about their meal service. Not trying to be harsh. If you do eat there, it WILL be an enjoyable experience. [I... More
