Menu features a full range of very-well prepared and fresh cuisine for everyone. You'll get a great Iceberg Wedge, a fantastic steak or chicken or fish dish. Nothing wrong with safe and excellent and that's what this is. Further, the staff is extremely kind and attentive. You'll pay for it, but I bet its the best meal in town by... More

First, I would like to preface this review with a disclaimer. My wife and I have dined here before and have thoroughly enjoyed our experience. But, as it has happened so many times before, chefs and their restaurants get either stupid or complacent on Valentine's Day. They abbreviate the menu and subsequently shortchange the experience. Dinner started well enough. Although... More

So we arrived at about 8:10 am just after the restaurant opened for breakfast. Julie, the hostess, seated us at a beautifully set table in a windowed corner. Beautiful china, crystal, silver and linen...everything first rate. We were looking out over the property and at the beautiful countryside beyond. We started with their great coffee and then selected breakfast from... More
