Food scene

Reservations highly recommended. Take out available also. There is a NEW Wine room which opened summer 2021. Wonderful wine tasting and appetizers. Full menu service menu in wine room( with a wait) if reservations are full. Our personal favorite restaurant which happens to be only two minutes drive. Freshly made, generous portions. Bang Bang shrimp is a must-have appetizer. You will understand after the first bite! She crab soup is delectable. Chloe’s Chicken and Beef Tips are our favorite entree.
