If waitress brought out the flower pot bread.....I ask for extra strawberry butter, very accomodating. Out party consisted of 12 people, we didn't wait very long at all. The shrimp Alfredo is excellent!!

I used to go to this restaurant with great regularity while in college and the years after in the 1990s. We went again for the holidays and I am happy to report that it still feels the same and the food was equally as delicious.
