The food here is very good. Prices are reasonable and service is good. If you go in cold weather , make sure you make reservations and sit in main area and not in the attached room in the back which is very cold

We went apple picking nearby and drove past this local's restaurant. It was busy on a Saturday night. Our server, Tyler, was terrific.The menu includes a great variety. We shared the BBQ Bacon wrapped shrimp and it was simply delicious. The ceasar salad was good. The red sangria was excellent! The specials included a scallop risotto. The scallops were plentiful...

Thursday night was prime rib night for $20, which includes baked potato or rice, veggie and salad. Huge portion of prime rib (20 oz). It was delicious!! Staff amazingly welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Sat outside and saw... More

Our group was seated next to the window which faced west, looking at the runway. A small plane and a helicopter took off for our viewing pleasure! We all ordered off the special menu. It was delicious! Our service was very good. The wait staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Two of our group took food home. It was... More

The past few times I have gone the service has been a little bit lacking.. waiting a long time for a waitress to come back to check on us.. especially when seated... More

In 2013, I wrote a raving review about this restaurant. It pains me to have to write a poor review of this place because I once really loved it, I feel it has gone down hill, I think it may have a new owner. The food is still great and the location of it being right near the airport is... More

This is because the fact that the restaurant has high ceilings and large windows that let you see the small planes landing and taking off. Now as far as the restaurant, we... More
