Sunday brunch is good assortment of savory and sweet, breakfast lunch and dessert. The eggs Benedict were pretty good. Surprised to see a raw bar in this part of the territory. You can take 80 or scenic route 6 to get here.

I've been here 3-4 times over the past few years, and it used to be pretty good. This time, I felt we didn't get our money's worth. Between our party we had chicken, shrimp, and steak, and while it was okay, it was not worth...More

Wonderful place to enjoy an excellent meal! The barn restaurant has a large amount of seating. Very nice environment for families, groups, business, couples and solo. The large salad bar offers fresh breads, cheese blocks, salads with all the fixings. Many choices to choose from...More
