We had a wonderful dinner with many selections from which to choose. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive and the ambiance was lovely! You could talk to each other without the music overpowering your conversation, but the music was pleasant also. Food was excellent and perfectly done.

This restaurant is consistently a nice place for dinner. A bit pricey but the atmosphere is casual and warm. This time of year the fireplace offers a lot of ambience. Its quiet and the service is good. Something that is often missing - servers either hovering or missing. The atmosphere makes it a good place for discussion around the table. I have found the food on several visits to be dependably good. I recently had their pork ribeye while my wife had their crab chicken. Both dishes were very good while the volume of food was sufficient. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Michigan City area.

Normally good food so we decided to try last minute for New Years Eve. One of us had beef wellington just average in taste and the other Prime Rib (very bad) which tasted like it had been beaten to make it tender. The consistency was awful. It was not Medium Rare as ordered. Took it home for son to try and even he didn't like it. Not sure what happened this night but not our best meal ever there. The staff is always very nice and it really is great ambience. We will try again but a little disappointed for such a nice evening.

I would not recommend this restaurant if you have gluten or dairy allergies.
Our server was not knowledgeable about the menu offering or methods on how food was prepared.
Though it is a charming setting.
