We had dinner with friends. First time there. Dinner was well prepared and delicious. We had the goat cheese cakes and the salmon for our entree. They have daily specials, too. The restaurant is small, friendly, and well appointed. All in all, a great evening.

Reservations for dinner only, however we do a call ahead for breakfast and lunch on sat and sun.
Can you handle a group of 8 for Sunday breakfast?

Response from Terri J | Property representative |
We can, however I strongly suggest calling about an hour before you plan to arrive. We do not take reservations but do have a call ahead system which is helpful when we have a wait, especially with a larger group. Thanks.
Are you open January 18?
