This is a special place. The Server/owner? is always so happy to see you and the food is always divine. For the quality of the decor and food, you would expect it to be more expensive than it is. Try the gourmet pies!

The food and the staff are absolutely wonderful. No problems coping with dietary requirements and they are so friendly that you feel part of the family. I love that my kids are welcome even though it is a fine dining restaurant.
