Its a beautiful drive up the peninsula to get to the restaurant. The restaurant itself is something to be desired. The food was just okay. The micro-brew menu was small. I do realize it was a busy place, but feel the appearance and cleanliness of the restaurant needs some work.

Fantastic dinner and atmosphere. Excellent service. Great selection of beers and the Mission Table wine tasting is located in the front section of the building.

Great decor with an old barn twist with a very trendy menu of new flavors. Try the carnivore pizza, YUM!

Enjoyed our meal - food was good and atmosphere was enjoyable. Only one small negative - the people in the booth next to us had a loud and unruly child, kind of spoiled what was otherwise a nice experience. But that's not the restaurant's fault. Would certainly come back again!

I got to tour the mansion a little. It was quite impressive with a lot of dining rooms that are separate from each other. The food was outstanding, I had the short ribs. Staff was friendly and attentive.
