We ate outside on the patio. The evening was cool, food delish and service most friendly. Hated to leave.

I was there with a group last weekend. We were upstairs in a room by ourselves and there was a mystery dinner theatre that was part of the evening's entertainment. The theatre was kitschy and entertaining - actually the only reason this restaurant gets a...More
