I don't know whose idea it was to put a restaurant like this out in the middle of nowhere, but I am glad a colleague told me about it. Like I said a bit out of the way but absolutely worth the drive. Apparently the...More

Wear your oversized pants because your buttons won't make it out of the restaurant! Plan for two and a half wonderful hours of a fantastic dining experience. We were fortunate to get a window table that overlooked the lake at sunset which just added to...More

There are not many fine dining places left in the area. This has white table cloths and is in an old house. Excellent food, very rich, save for special occasions. The dessert cart is to die for, you can choose 3 slivers of dessert on...More
