The stake here is superb! Servers are friendly and attentive. We were here twice and just celebrated my mom's birthday here. They have spacious rooms and can hold group parties.

We appreciate fine dining and experimented with this stop while travelling. High quality, great service, the price matches the experience in a fair manner. If you aren't looking for economical, but are willing to pay for what you get...this place was a perfect match.
