Great location and can walk easily from hotel to restaurant. On nice days, have a good outdoor eating area. Food is good and has a nice bar to sit at if you are traveling alone. Good atmosphere for families as well.

Had our annual work party here in a back room that I did not know even existed. Food was great, good flavor and served hot to a group of about 40 people. Service was good and responded to requests quickly.
