An elegant restaurant with delicious and artfully prepared food. Just right for a very special occasion. The prime rib dinner is terrific. They also serve many wonderful desserts.

Britt Festivals

Attraction

Quote:
From mid-June to Labor Day contemporary artists perform in the natural amphitheater. Bring a picnic dinner, a blanket (or a chair for us older folks please), and find a spot on the lawn. Sit back and enjoy an evening of entertainment.
