Late Saturday lunch began with a fairly long waiting time for the server to notice us, in a room with only two other occupied tables. She finally came over and went into a long apology about how "this is not usually one of her tables"...More

The reviews we read were much more positive than the food turned out to be. Upon entering there is a beautiful bar which was moved into the building. It is worth having a drink to view it but the food left much to be desired....More

Service wasn't great. We had to ask for refills twice and she still was more interested in her 1 other table. Had to go get our own ketchup and mustard off the servers table. Bison burger was great.
