      Harvest Inn isn't a good option... it's too slow and it's noisy.

      I'd suggest Carousel, myself.

            I would be very wary of Minx. Dropped by for dinner about a week ago.

            Got seated without problems.

            Waited about 20 minutes for menus.

            Then an outrageous 25 more minutes for the watier to take our orders (this AFTER telling them we were ready to order).

            After waiting another 15 minutes or so we were told that what we had ordered was not available (the Halibut), we decided to leave.
