Is it wheelchair friendly

Response from fredwilner | Reviewed this property |
Although the restaurant is on one level, the tables are very close together and it was difficult to manuever around them. I would call in advance and speak to the manager.
Is it wheelchair friendly?

The tables are close together. However, you must make a reservation to dine, so when you call, just ask if they can accommodate a wheelchair. Personally, I think they can.
I would like to see the menu
