First visit - won't be our last. Had a delightful lunch. Ordered the artichoke cheese spread with homemade flatbread, small squirrel salad and the Asian crab sandwich. Generous portions and everything prepared to perfection.

We arrived early and sat at the bar which we prefer. Friendly staff full of local knowledge. The fried green tomato appetizer was excellent layered with a house smoked bacon worth the trip. But our entrees of house smoked pork and a Gorgonzola pasta were...More
