My wife and I went there with about 22 other people, the waitresses were friendly and nice. We placed our order for an appetizer and food, the appetizer came out quickly, then our food. Both were great and at a reasonable price.

We stopped in this restaurant while passing through town. It was very good and the service was excellent. I ordered the chicken salad croissants and my husband ordered the salmon. Both were delicious. We will certainly stop again if in town.

A very pleasant surprise. We had four of us for dinner. Our service was exceptional. The prices are very reasonable and the food was excellent. Dessert was over the top. I would highly suggest splitting one if you get it. This will be our new...More
