Pork Osso Buco? You kidding me? What a great dish. Fall off the bone and wonderful compliment of mushroom sauce. Fired potato role ( Think loaded... More

This is my husband's favorite in North Central Arkansas (I love it as well). Driving out to it is a little scary because you really are in the boonies, but low an behold this gem of a place is right on the water and has beautiful wood interior. The food is high quality and the service is top notch. Highly... More

Excellent restaurant, friendly staff, excellent service. Food is outstanding. Our friends from Detroit claim the prime rib is "The best they ever had." We have tried most items on the menu. Our favorite appetizers are the smoked trout tray and the quail breasts wrapped in bacon. We love the sea bass and the salmon dishes, but tend to try various... More

After long day of fishing this is such a nice treat. Started with the smoked salmon appetizer. It was great. I had the whiskey salmon. It was pretty good, was slightly charred in some spots, but it was still good. Also tried the pork shank and it was great.

Out of curiosity I saw where this Restaurant received a 1 or terrible review just last month. I'm amazed. We ate there last night and it was one of the best meals I've eaten in the area and maybe in the state. We also made reservations, but saw we were going to be late, so we called and informed them....

We went to PJs for my husbands birthday as we were vacationing in Mountain View and this was the closest "fine dining" establishment around. After a beautiful (yet long) drive there we were about ten minutes late for our reservation. We were told our table had been given away despite making reservations months in advance and informing them it was... More

My husband and I dined here to celebrate his retiring. We were joined by another couple. We had surf and turf, a chicken pasta dish and a ribeye steak. All were very good. After trying my husbands pasta I wished I had ordered the same thing. Service by our waiter was excellent. It is nice to dress up for dinner... More
