Harriet is by one of the best servers and worker I have encountered in a long time. She is extremely friendly, knows her menu items for great recommendations, and remembers her customers and what they like. She makes everyone feels welcomed and comfortable.

Great menu choices from start to finish. All of the food was really good and they had enough variety to cover any and all tastes. Get the Wedges and/or French fries with aioli and sweet thai sauce on the side. Yum yum!
