I have eaten here before, especially good breakfasts. My experience this past weekend was unforgettable. The trout was fishy, undercooked, and just plain inedible. My wife returned the meal to the waiter. She picked an alternative from the menu, but was told they were out...More

Creative (but not fussy) cooking with fresh ingredients and wonderful favors. Lots of good choices, the fish is amazing and the presentation of the meals is beautiful.

We have lived in town for many years, and this place had always flown under our radar. It's in a little unassuming strip mall next to a Dairy Queen, but we decided to take a shot. We are so glad we did. The restaurant specializes...More

Service is interminably SLOW! There were only two other tables being served yet our appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive. Our servers were attentive and tried to be helpful with water, etc but, apparently the kitchen staff could not handle the "Rush" of three tables...More
