This restaurant provides a very pleasant setting for excellent food and friendly service. Located next to one of the town's shuttle stops, the restaurant offers a variety of seating areas and a wait staff that is very accommodating. Worth a visit.

When I first saw this restaurant, I had assumed it would be pretty high quality. That changed after I had dinner/breakfast here. The food is alright, but nothing to write home about. It was a little pricey for the quality of food too, especially for...More
