Last night was our first visit. We arrived at 6:35 for a 6:45 resv and were seat immediately.
Quite a few open tables. The bar area was a ghost town.
Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Floor manager was by the table once, inquiring
if we were happy - we were. Matt kept popping out of the kitchen and looking around ...
probably six times in the hour that we were there.
The cocktail was very heavy on the ice; and a bit of a thrifty pour. My bride's Pino pour was
They have a soup trio on the dinner menu; IIRC, $8 well spent. Loved the squash(?)
bisque and corn chowder. The third was forgettable.
I was having a difficult time deciding between the lamb shank ($29) and the brisket ($19).
I ordered the brisket (w/home made noodles and a root vegetable sauce/dressing). My
first reaction: Small portion. The noodles were served in the center of a large plate,
occupying the center. The brisket was served separately, in a 3.5" ramekin. Very tasty.
Would have liked a bit more brisket. Yet by the time I was finished, my appetite was satisfied.
I would order again ... but after seeing the lamb shank served to a nearby table, I will be
ordering that on my next visit.
My bride ordered the scallops. She commented that the sauce was much heavier than
that served at Northern Lakes. Not what she was expecting. Because of the sauce, she
would not order again.
The apple crisp was warm. The ice cream scoop was cold (and an unexpected pleasure).
$93 for two; not including tip. Free WiFi.
