We were visiting the area and stopped in. The food was great and so was the service. Has a supper club feel with good steaks, seafood and burgers.

Fun place to sit back, drink coffee or mimosas and relax. The food is great and the cinimon rolls are back to what they used to be!

We have reserved their "back room" for a gathering of over 20 people for several years Easters now. Everything is always ready for us. The service is EXCELLENT and the food (buffet) is great--both quality and selection. We will keep coming back!
