Basic menu. Basic service. Over priced. If you were staying at motel and didn't feel like wandering off somewhere else for a meal then it may suit?

We were there with a group of about 8. Took an hour to get our drinks and they weren't even busy. A shame because it has really nice decor and the food was pretty good too.

I am disappointed to read that you did not have a pleasant experience at our restaurant. I find it strange that you walked away hungry fro our Friday and Saturday night special. Two courses for $35.00. This proves to be very popular with our customers....More

We were not impressed with the meals, service was uneven on the table, some orders were missed, and we were treated like fools when we queried a wine supplied to our table. Certainly won't be returning in the near future.More
