Something to look forward to..great food!

I am always impressed with the consistency of both the food and the service for many of the times I have eaten here with family gatherings or simply a meal with my wife.

My partner took me for a late birthday Valentine's date. This place was not at all what I expected. Kind of trendy without trying and very good service.We played trivial pursuit which was on the table. Iiked that the tables are not too close together and there were booths as well. The food was fantastic and reasonable price wise. We... More

Portions were large; drinks were big; and smiles were free. A great little spot for a tasty lunch. We had the clam chowder; em-em-good! This was my first time here and the reviews are true. We'll visit again.

I highly recommend the weagle salad (hope I spelled that right) service... More

Been here lots, never had a bad experience. Staff are friendly, food is good, and always leave full. By yourself or in a group, there'll be something on the menu for all.
