    Please do not remove the maple burger from the menu .. it was the by far the best I've ever had. Change the description (remove the word spicy) ... this burger was superb! p.s. we loved our server .. she was so friendly & accommodating. Andrea Kemp

    Good food, service a bit slow considering there were only 2 tables at the time. When we booked we said special occasion- anniversary but nothing was offered or acknowledged so not sure why they asked if it was a special occasion. Online reservation tool was excellent.

    It was a birthday celebration which I noted when I booked. It wasn’t busy but our orders too long. We were still eating when we were offered take out boxes. I had to ask for a birthday surprise for my daughter and the waitress just laid an ice cream and brownie with a candle in front of her. We (family) sang to her but the brownie was so hot it burned her mouth. No one else was asked if they wanted dessert or tea/coffee. This is my second consecutive poor service experience so I will not go back again. All the times before (multiple) were great - sad it has been disappointing.
