    Mother’s Day Brunch was delicious! Eggs cooked perfectly. The Angel Hair Pasta and Tuna were just as delicious. It’s open for dinner tonight too. Enjoy!

    Liver and fries-no green veg. Lamb tenderloin asked for MR arrived well done. Disappointing. We are used to much better from this restaurant. Superb service but one goes out to eat for good food, right? We will try again and hope its prior reputation is still deserved. Last night it was NOT.
