Outside looks like average fare country restaurant. Inside: tasty cocktails; spiral zucchini noodles- excellent. Steak with shrimp - delicious. Spicy shrimp appetizer- delicious.
Only negative: wine list in serious need of upgrading.

After rafting, we stopped in to grab a bite to eat, staff were amazing. Food was great. We had a Cuba, Pulled Pork and drinks. Hit the spot! Sandy recommended our next stop to a distillery. I would recommend this to those who need a bite to eat or trusty tips on others stops on your adventure. Thanks!

Sat night about 6 pm the 15 to 20minute wait turned into thirty min. Two of us had fish and chips, fish good but eclipsed by coleslaw. Service polite but they were obviously stretch thin.
Nice cozy atmosphere but call ahead for seating for evening meals.

The setting is nice. We’ve had a much better experience here for Italian nite in the past. Menu is extremely limited with little healthy options. The “bruschetta” was not bruschetta and not very good. It was freezing inside. The menu says wild caught salmon, a pet peeve of mine, it’s farmed salmon. I think we’ll stick to Italian night in the off season here.

We went there for Sunday brunch after reading the great reviews. The service was dreadful. Although the restaurant was less than half full, it took us 15 minutes to get served water and drinks. We ordered our brunch dishes when we ordered our drinks, but it took another 30 minutes after the drinks were served to get our food. When the food was served, I ordered a glass of wine. The server acknowledged it and promptly disappeared. Meanwhile the bartender seemed to be more interested in chatting with bar patrons than making drinks. I flagged down another server and asked her for the glass of wine. She told us that our server was "in training" and that she would get it right away. Then, she vanished. As we were finishing our food our server finally reappeared and asked if we needed anything else. I told her that our water glasses were empty and asked her how long does it take to pour a glass of wine? She apologized and said that both she and the bartender were new and "in training." That may be, but we didn't see anyone training them or back-stopping them.

We will never go back. Two bullets instead of one only because the food was so good. But it wasn't worth the terrible service.
