I love the stuffed chicken dish I get it every time I go to this restaurant. One time I did have a leaf from the huge indoor living tree they have, land in my food but it didn't really bother me it was just surprising! The food if excellent, but the iced tea was not very good at all.
We really enjoy this restaurant. They have a number of signature dishes such as their ribs, chicken Florentine, scallops, coquille st jacques (spelling?) and they advertise the best prime rib and steaks in town. Service, although not the most professional, is great because the servers themselves are competant and friendly. I'll take friendly over a cold distant server anytime - especially when I'm traveling. Price, all inclusive, can be up there but for the quality and size of servings well worth it. That said they do have items priced from 7.00 for sandwiches and stuff to salads around 10.00 and dinner entrees around 17 - 23.00. We plan our trip when heading up or down the State to include a stop for dinner here. If it is late we just stay at the hotel which has its own attraction.
Discriminates against Solo Diners. Was put behind a tree at a table too small. Asked for a booth. Was told they were all reserved. Witnessed the booths while dining and a several remained open while I was there and until I left. I am willing to pay more and I always tip more 30-40%. I have been here before for many years and at that time there was more respect toward customers.
