We stopped by for Sunday brunch. They were out of the breaded tenderloin sandwich...so my wife opted for the house salad...nothing special. I had the pancakes...very tasty.

I'm sure that the chef would be happy to accommodate your dietary needs. I'd mention it when you make reservations, so a variety of options could be offered.
