Do I have to wear a mask?

Until COVID subsides or health officials no longer recommend masks, we mandate that masks be worn on our property out of an abundance of caution for our staff and our guests’ health. If your health situation dictates that you cannot wear a mask, we invite you to join us when it’s more safe for you.

We love platters! We’re happy to help you create one perfect for your taste buds. Because everything is sold by weight, we cannot accurately price a generalized platter.
