Thank you Darrow's for truth in advertising! Yes, their meals are cooked from scratch and their salad dressings are homemade. Excellent perch dinner... I'm still recovering from calorie overload with the homemade pie... ;) Great service, thank you wait staff!

At first the line appeared too long of a wait, but after 10-15 minutes we were seated. The food was AMAZING! The service was exceptional. Very laid back environment. We will definitely be back our next trip up north.
