    I got the Lynne's Hot Brown. It was delicious! You know it's a serious hot brown when it comes in a bowl. :)

    Make a diorama with the animals and brush up on your Trivial Pursuit while you wait. Never a dull moment.

    The hot brown was just ok. Didn't have any ham on it so it was missing some flavor.

    Don't go to this place. They have horrible service and I presume it is because I was the only black person dining in there.

    Long waits, a little expensive for breakfast... oh wait try the biscuits and gravy....Never Mind (to be spoken like Rosanne Rosanna Dana). Really is good, we are just spoiled and fun even for kids.

    The Brie & Bacon salad is amazing. White balsamic pumpkin seed vinegarette? holy wow.

  • Jake A.

    It's a little pricey, but I can recommend it. Go for breakfast food, of any kind. If you're not in the mood for sweet (i.e. French toast), go for the farmhouse scramble!

    This place is an experience the second you pull in. The food is pricey, however the experience is validated. Worth every penny.
