COVID Policies


Due to reduced seating capacity, and in order to ensure proper sanitation and dining room safety, reservations are required.

Reservations will be available two weeks in advance and all reservation availability is accessible through our website.

Starting November 16th a receptionist will be available to answer your phone calls from 11am-7pm.

For dinner reservations, a $25 deposit per person is required for booking.  The deposit will be refunded if cancelled up to 24 hours in advance or upon arrival to your reservation.  No deposit is required at lunch.

To accommodate our reservations in a timely and orderly manner, our team has carefully designed time frames in which to dine. Group sizes and allotted dining times are:
Lunch: 1-2 guests (1:30), 3-4 guests: (1:45), 5-8 guests (2hrs)
Dinner:  1-2 guests (1:45), 3-4 guests  (2hrs), 5-8 guests (2.5 hrs)

Please arrive on time for your reservation.  If you are more than 15 minutes late to your reservation, we may cancel your reservation in order to ensure that we minimize waiting parties.  Please be aware that there is no bar or indoor area for waiting should you arrive in advance of your reservation.  We will do our best to seat you on time and look forward to your visit.

Our winter hours of operation are 11:30am-3pm for lunch, and 5pm-9:30pm for dinner.
