The Taverna bar area is so comfortable...the warm olives and pita are the perfect hors'd oeuvres. Terry consistently provides excellent, welcoming service and the food is delicious.

The menu is unique and has many options. I love all the choices and the atmosphere is great. They have a wine cellar you can look down into from the bar area via a see through floor. Music on the weekends with outstanding regional musicians.
