Parking is tight but the food is fabulous. The young female hostess didn't need to write down names. She has a great memory and is very efficient. The service was good . I had the baked in blueberry pancakes and my husband had a turkey...More

Oops – sorry I didn't see this question for so long. It appears I am not getting notifications from trip and Iser. Unfortunately I don't remember how many types of pancakes they have but I'm sure it was a lot!
