It was our anniversary—- we ate outside in the deck and it was wonderful. Food was fantastic and the staff was very attentive without being overbearing.

Delicious cocktails and great food! Really enjoyed the steaks and brussel sprouts. Waiter was very nice and accommodating, hostess was lovely. They have a very cute outdoor patio and it was the perfect night for it! I loved the smell of the burning fire and the decor of the whole place. I think it would be super cozy in winter as well. My only note would be to add candles for the outdoor tables for after sunset as it did get very dark and was hard to see. Otherwise it was a great evening and will definitely be back!

Go there often but Friday night they were slammed and understaffed. It's tough on places right now and they are no different. Go off hours and you'll love it. Go when it is busy and you'll have a poor experience until they get staffed back up.

We arrived and were promptly seated. Our waiter was very attentive and ensured we were well taken care of. The cocktails are delicious. I had the Wild Indie Mule and it was very refreshing. Our food was great as well. My husband had the duck on fried Brussel sprouts with a blueberry demi glaze that he said was amazing!

Slow service. Server took a long time to take the order and the birthday we were celebrating wasn’t acknowledged. Until it was mentioned to him. Maybe it wasn’t relayed to the server

A lot of items tend to be out of stock (86’d). Food is always pretty good but I think it’s kinda losing its charm after going about 10 times now....I think he they need to have bigger portions if they wanna keep the prices they have. That’s probably my main complaint. I never super full when I leave there but always up spending like a buck fifty for 2 ppl. Espresso machine still broke and it’s been like a year...so idk what’s up with that. Same with the no happy hour, they should bring back too. If it wasn’t really close and out of the way of traffic we probably wouldn’t go there so much. I wouldn’t get that meatloaf trio again either, tasted like a frozen entree. And the chicken and waffles I had was alright but the cantaloupe relish didn’t really go with it IMO. The cheese plates always good and the salads I like. Entrees I think they need more options. Especially fish dishes. I think it was just salmon or shrimp but that’s just on pasta.

Everything was great, just very dark. Had to use flashlight on phone to read menu. They took great strides for Covid cleanliness.

My martini was great, I ordered the watermelon one, the sparkling bottle of water was $10 dollars, and am sorry but that's insane, the salmon bruschetta was the worse, it seems like it was out of a can, it was awful, the pearl salad was great, but our server wouldn't split it, the lobster bisque soup was very salty, the scallop pasta had 2 scallops in it, and again she wouldn't split it, the Brussels sprouts were delicious, and we never got bread, everyone around us did, except us, felt left out and I think that was the cherry on the cake if you know what I mean.
The place was beautiful but awful food and service.

This was our first time here and we enjoyed ourselves!! We ordered martinis and our server, Rachel, was not kidding when she advised us to sip while glass still on the table. To the brim and fabulous!!! I ordered the Rye Go Home and my husband had The Seedless.
We had the calamari (oh so good), then our entrees. Not going to lie, my husband got the spicy chicken and waffle-wow! Delicious!!!
Highly recommend checking them out.

Amazing food ! The filet and potatoes were phenomenal and so were the deer meatballs! Martinis were filled to the top and Delicious! Appetizers portions were smaller than expected for the price but so good. Definitely recommend this place and we will be going again for date nights when expecting an expensive evening but it’s worth the money!

The staff went out of their way from the minute we walked in. Very spacious restaurant perfect for Covid issues or spacing. The drink menu was wonderful and had something for everyone. Great overall choice of food. Our meal was good. Not wonderful or something I would need to return for but good. Nice location close to highway.
