We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon with 2 adults and 2 kids. The food was reasonably priced, well cooked and came out fairly quickly. Beautiful building, staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely come back.

Here you can not have exceptional food, but the place is comfortable, and you can watch sports on TV and play pool. Sticky tables.
