Regular stop. Spent the last two New Years here with friends and had great experiences. The food preparation and presentation is excellent and the staff is great. The owner always makes a point to speak with you and he is delightful. Definitely will be back!

Welcoming venue and service, overall an enjoyable experience without hiccup. Drinks were very enjoyable - food was well prepared, not haute cuisine but neither was that expected.
