The best part of this restaurant is the view from the dining room and the excellent service provided by the wait service. We found the food to be average. However, good enough for a return trip.

I believe that they serve lunch from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. There is no mention of Gluten Free on their menu. Their phone number: (609) 693-3351
