I've been here 3 times over the years, all with groups in their large glass walled room. Each time I had wonderful food, service and time with friends.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express next door. Tired and hungry from flying in from the East Coast, this restaurant was a welcome oasis. Like Lake Wobegon 's children, everything was above average but not great. My starter salad was OK. My husband's pizza and...More
