Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Great food, great service, great pricing and great atmosphere. We asked for a table near the open fire and we were positioned right beside it. Just loved the whole experience. Definitely will be back.

Party of 9. I enjoyed the calamari and the beef salad with Dutch apple cake for dessert. A variety of dishes ordered by members of our party and all were enjoyed. Seating was comfortable, the service was good and the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly.
