The food was very good, served family style. The meatloaf was excellent- not much filler like most places. Our hostess was very charming and very knowledgeable. The staff was very attentive and the house was beautiful.

Overpriced for what they give you. I don't recall exact amount, but it was $22-$25. You can cook the same food home only better.
