An incredible fine in a small community. Upon returning from 5 days enjoying the fabulous restaurants of New York City, we were amazed at the great atmosphere, divine food and excellent service. The prices were very favorable and the portions were large enough to split. You will NOT regret your dining experience!!

We were given a gift certificate by our children to celebrate our anniverary. The atmosphere was nice, quiet but not where you felt like you couldn't talk. Service was excellent and server very knowledgeable about specials and such...
