I had the oyster plate and Nancy had a philli cheesesteak. Both were fabulous. I tried the pale ale and it was good. We are not dessert people so no report there. Great service from greeting to table. Love it!

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
