Operates in a large house. I imagine you can get different environments by sitting in different rooms. The "sun room" was relaxed and free of obnoxious chatter on a busy night. They provide some solid gluten-free and vegetarian choices. The food is great. Ketchup and pickles seem like they're made in-house.
