We were with a group of friends. The menu was varied. We all like to try each other‘s food and every bit of it was delicious. Our service was also excellent. The pork loin with slaw was a favorite.

MMMMM! Oyster starters! Our dinner was scrumptious! I had the tastiest fresh rainbow trout served with salad and mixed greens. eye went immediately to the beautifully cooked quail appetizer. His entree, hangar steak, was the best he's ever tasted!
