The second visit to this lovely restaurant. I just wish we'd stayed there for dinner instead of being disappointed elsewhere. The beer was great and the food looked excellent.

This was an amazing place to take my mom for Mother's Day brunch. There was live jazz, and free roses given to every mom. It was truly a day I'll never forget. The ambiance and service was top-notch!

This place is sort of unique. Most of the restaurant is outdoors, under a tent-like structure. It is quite large with several levels. It also had live music, a nice touch. We both had savory crepes, which were very good and a nice size. This...More
