Had a high school reunion here. Can’t speak to the regular menu but the buffet was about as good as buffets can get. The decor was elegant.

Very good setting for weddings and of course dine in for their great food and service- rare filet mignon is superb and their eggplant with ricotta cheese. Highly recommended.
