My wife and I, as well as my immediate family, have been patrons for a good period of time here. We always enjoy ourselves. The owners are very personable. Music is always a plus.

They have veggies and other stuff that's gluten free. I would call asap and see if you can get in. The place is rather large and has outside seating.
