We went during the cookie walk...made reservations before hand...and got in about 15 minutes after our time. Food came at a decent amount of time. Our server was great! Everyone liked their food. We shared a piece of the lever high apple pie. Delicious!!

My salad was almost all lettuce. There was very little fruit on it and it was not chilled. Too much money to pay for just lettuce. Very disappointed.
