We are a fine-dining establishment that specializes in a prix-fixe, seven-course menu.
How much does it cost?

Do you offer wine pairings with your dinner?

Do you sell spirits and do you have a bar?
No, we do not have a bar and we do not sell spirits. In fact, since we are not licensed for them, you are not able to bring them in either.
Who is your chef and where did you find him?
Chef Nathan Carlson is our Tuesday through Saturday Chef. Formerly, he ran his own restaurant in Klamath Falls, Oregon. We are so fortunate to have him as our executive chef. You will see why when you eat here!
Can you handle dietary restrictions?
Dietary restrictions, without an exception, are handled very nicely with delicious alternatives. Our chef can handle with ease all sorts of food allergies and dietary restrictions, provided we are given advance notice.
What do you mean by “Luxury Ride and Dine?”
Since we are out of town a few miles, we have a very reasonably priced package, Luxury Ride and Dine, which provides safe and luxury transportation to our guests.
