Great, tasty selections for the whole family. The pot pie was delicious! The salads were wonderful, too. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the tree snow fly that evening. Was beautiful and very unique dining experience.

The theme here is comfort food with a "twist". Good salads and not your typical chicken pot pie either. (Try the chicken and waffles if you aren't from Texas, where this is apparently the state food.) Very friendly service with the summer college kids working...More
