Service was a bit slow; seating is a bit cramped. Food is delicious. Within walking distance of several tourist sites. They take reservations; be sure and make one.

This is a great place to dine. You wouldn't believe the fabulous cuisine that come out of such a tiny kitchen. If you looking for a good hamburger, try the bacon and cheese royale with seasoned fries and a spicy mango salad. If you looking for more of a sit-down dinner, the petite steak, garlic mash and vegetables is great.... More

We loved our dinner here! Had two appetizers (a southwestern shrimp and sesame tuna) as well as two green salads--everything was great, especially the tuna and the salads. At the table next to us, a group of guys were all having hamburgers--they looked AMAZING (the burgers...not so much the guys)!

The hotel we was staying in told us about this place, was seated as soon as we walked in, the food was a little pricey $25 for a 6 oz steak, service was slowed once we sat down.

Had dinner while attending a convention in the area. Very personable service, even though they were very busy. Started off with some very tasty wings, then a bowl of the seafood gumbo...great! Had a cheeseburger after that...very good but the fries were on the cool and soggy side, so only had a few. Others at the table had a fish... More

Such a great atmosphere and service from a busy staff. Everything seems to be custom ordered and the bread pudding is the ultimate! Oh my goodness!! I don't like bread pudding, but theirs is... superb!

This place has a very cute setting. I loved the fact that the waiter's allow you to choose your own seat. The lighting was a little low which made it a great chill our bar but for family dinner with kids it was a pain. Just a fraction up on the lights would have made a difference. I've shared some...
