This place has seen better days. They did have good food and many gluten free options. A burger is only 10.00, but everything else is in the 20s and 30 dollar range for steaks and seafood. Some cobwebs hanging from light fixtures isn't real appetizing...More

Our Champagne Sunday Brunch runs at $37 for Adults and $14 for Children. Holiday pricing does differ. Please let us know if we can assist with anything else.

Your online menu does not show prices or explain the entrees i.e. chicken breast - well there are a thousand ways to prepare it. It doesn't say what comes with the entree - if anything. I husband loves fish/seafood, I don't. Your online menu doesn't give me enough information to make me want to try it.
