We visit the area every year and never miss this restaurant. We brought friends this year and were boasting about it for days. We were not disappointed once again. The food was excellent, service perfect.

Service was excellent. Our server was so knowledgeable about all the specials (regrettably I forgot his name!). Food was some of the best I’ve ever had. The salmon with blue cheese butter was to die for. My husband had the filet and was in heaven!...More

If you don't mind sitting in the bar area you should be fine. If you want a real table in the proper restaurant, I'd make a reservation.

It was Easter Sunday when we went but it is mostly a casual restaurant. Patrons were dressed up after church so our experience was different. I really like this place!
