Very pleasant atmosphere with fireplace and tablecloths and the food was very good, but I'd recommend being mindful about sitting too close to cold and very NOISY A/C vents.

Food was delicious and they went out of their way to accommodate our kids, nieces and nephews. Waiters were super engaging. Loved the heirloom tomato salad. Others in our party enjoyed the celebration salad, tuna appetizer, and filet mignon.

yes . I haven’t brought my kids in awhile. I know they have flat bread pizza and spaghetti as a kid option. Also ask for the cotton candy. They make it there at no charge. Kids love that. Hope this helps.
