We had received recommendations to try this restaurant from a variety of sources. Now we can also highly recommend this spot, for lunch or dinner, indoors or out. It is lovely, great service, fast seating, high energy, family friendly, and GREAT food.

We had a lovely, well prepared appetizer - baked Brie with maple syrup and nuts. Yum! My partner ate trout, while I enjoyed a wonderful bleu cheese salad concoction. Again, Yum! The staff was a mix of friendly-snooty, otherwise a five experience.

Loved this place!! Best restaurant we ate at in Highlands. We came for lunch - delicious food, EXTREMELY nice servers and loved the decor. Prices for lunch were pretty reasonable and dress for lunch was semi-casual. Not sure dinner attire there, but would definitely recommend!

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. We dine here every time we are in the area, and it is always a pleasure. The service is great also, making this a place you have to go.
