When to Go:
Catch live music on Fri. and Sat. nights (Memorial Day- Labor Day). Wine and Dine Wednesdays feature wines from a local winery paired with a special menu or you can order from the regular menu. Since they are open 7 nights a week, go when the sun is shining and enjoy the beautiful drive, sit on the deck and make a day of it enjoying the area. Ideas on their website.
