Personally, don't waste your $, appeared and tasted like everything was frozen and boxed, nothing tasted fresh. For $25.00 a person, something could be fresh. But, if you want to go to an old building with some ambiance this is for you.

We LOVE the trout here, especially Trout Hugo. Always a favorite. So delicious. Other trout dishes are good too. Family style dining. "Mushroom business" and the mac and cheese are super. Also love the Lima beans. Side selections change every night as do the desserts...More
