Tony was a great bartender. He was very attentive and kind. My husband and I enjoyed the atmosphere and watching the sunset as we drank our cocktails. A nice walk the French country inn(where we stayed).

Went here for lunch and Bloody Mary's and both were very pleasing. Great atmosphere and was a very pleasant experience. They were quite busy, but the kitchen was up for the task. Very good place to stop for great food.
