This was our first meal here but won’t be our last. It was nice to have lunch in a restaurant that did not have sports blaring on TVs all around the room. I had a delicious Greek pasta with shrimp, chicken, and artichokes. My husband...More

We just ate there for the first time. It's a Sunday after church and the place was packed. I've never seen a wait staff work so hard and fast! The food was delicious as was the desert. We will be going back!

My wife and I visited this restaurant 4/29/17. The service and food was great and the menu was extensive for the location. We enjoyed our meal and the service, the portions were huge. We will certainly return as we have a camp in the area.
