We enjoyed our lunch here. The service was good. The vegetables tasted very fresh and not overcooked. The chicken fajita salad was excellent.

This is a nice spot to grab lunch or dinner. Good solid menu with average priced items. Nice bar and ambience overlooking golf course. They sometimes have live music and you can rent out space for events.
