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.

The menu, while not extensive offers a great variety for everyone. It routinely changes but keeps customer favorites. The bar menu is cheaper and just as good, The fish and chips are awesome.
