I have eaten here many times over the years. Bother the formal dining room & bar have wonderful menus. The bar menu is less expensive and has a wide selection of entrees, sandwiches & salads. The dining room menu is also available in the bar. All the desserts are homemade & they serve the. Eat banana cream pie bar none!... More
