We happen to be in town and wondered where to have lunch. We decided to park the car and walk down the street and we immediately happened upon this restaurant. Menu looked good so we went in. The decor was nice with various large paintings on the wall. I ordered a ham & Swiss sandwich with mushrooms and a bernaise sauce with salad. It was very rich but tasty. My boyfriend ordered a special of the day. Smoke salmon and roasted pepper sandwich. He enjoyed his lunch, too! We have been back a few more times but, the last time, was for dinner. And, the food is just delicious. My mom ordered a Spanish paella dish, my brother and I had the pork roast, my daughter had the trout almondine and my boyfriend ordered the New York sirloin. We all enjoyed our meals. My boyfriend was a bit puzzled why was his steak was served cut up in pieces but he enjoyed his meal. Can't post all pics but I had added a few more.
