The Dining Room:

Our kitchen staff is available to serve groups of 15 to 200. We are famous for our delicious and healthful meals elegantly presented in a buffet style. If you have special requests for your group such as a vegan menu, this can be coordinated with our chefs. We are, however, unable to accommodate individual special requests.
