We've eaten here on a yearly basis when in the area. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly. It's always on our agenda for the week and when your finished take a walk across the swinging bridge.

Stopped in to give Miss Lilly's one more try. No wait staff. You order at the counter, pick your table and the food is brought to you. The tomato soup with blue cheese was very good and how can you mess up a garden salad?...More
