By far one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had- Mountain trout. My wife loved hers as well. Great service!

I'm sorry your dinning experience was not as good as it should have been. I don't know why you weren't allowed to sit outside. We usually leave it to the discretion of the customer at this time of year due to weather conditions. We don't...More
