In past meals where the food had been amazing. Today, not so much. When I made reservations, they didn't inform that it was buffet only on Sunday. After driving 2 hours, my family was very hungry. One of our party is a vegan. When we...More

We truly enjoyed the excellent service, along with the dishes served. The green tomato stacked salad made a nice appetizer for two. The Pan-seared trout was excellent, as was the brined pork chop. Looking forward to visiting next year.
