We've been coming here for two winters now and the food and service are still top notch. We love steak night best of all. The music is relaxing and very good.

We visited on Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised to find live music (performer playing guitar and singing - good!) and an all you can eat buffet that included everything from various seafood items to prime rib. Since were not hungry enough to justify the...More
