Creative entrees, presented beautifully. My wife and I each like our dinners (bison stroganoff and pork chops). Salads fresh and variety and restaurant prepared dressing. Quiet ambiance.

This restaurant is popular with locals and tourists for a good reason. They serve good food at a reasonable price. They also have a bar with a good selection of local craft beer.
