To be honest we chose this restaurant to eat at because it wasn't super busy even though it was a popular October weekend and we could be seated right away. I think it would have been nice to eat on the porch but it was...More

Had 'free' breakfast buffet here. Odd that kids stay 'free' at inn but couldn't have 'free' breakfast. The buffet was nothing but ordinary. No sausage, scrambled eggs only. Donuts from a box.

Absolutely no wine is served at any time and you can't take your own bottle to the restaurant. Reason? Too close to a church!
