My husband and I had dinner after our round of golf. My cauliflower soup was so so, but I enjoyed the smoked chicken salad. The servers are polite and good at what they do. We would go back anytime.

Six of us played golf in Escena "9 and Dine" offering. The golf was fun and everyone was ready for dinner when it was finished. Each of us had something different and each was pleased. I had the salmon and it was delicious.
