Never had a bad meal. Not fast pasted, just right. They have several dishes that are very tasty and great for lower calorie folks too. Ribs and steaks are good as well.

This is one of our go-to places. I went with my son for lunch. They have great salads and the most delicious homemade croissants. Atmosphere is warm - candles and dark wood - nice on a cold day! I had the chicken enchiladas which are...More

I don't think so. I had asked for a special table to be set up privately. I would recommend you call them. They were really nice to talk too.
