Fresh delicious food and good service

I've been here twice and it was good both times. Today I had the beet and arugula salad with grilled chicken and it was satisfying. It could have used some salt but other than that it was very good. The bartender was very nice and attentive to all bar patrons.

Small place with big reputation for great food and drinks. I had lamb shank over risotto and veg special, no knife needed, meat fell off the bone. Fun atmosphere,

Were there with friends on MLK day and had a great leisurely lunch. The roasted calamari was wonderful, just like Nona used to make! This isn't that fried greasy stuff, it's the real calamari, roasted with arugula, white beans, a hint of fennel drizzled with a light vinaigrette. Also had the caesar salad, a true caesar with egg and anchovy... More

Ate here with my daughter and granddaughter today and it was very good. Excellent service, a table was available rightaway and the food came in a short time. We had turkey sandwiches (more turkey!) and I liked the chutney under the meat, very tasty. Also the fries were good. My daughter had a salad and seemed to like it. A... More

We walked downtown to have lunch here and a movie. I haven't been here in years. We shared a Asian style chicken salad with a very good dressing. We also shared a pizza. Sharing these two dishes was exactly the amount we needed before the movie. This place is a busy place for lunch and now I understand why...the service... More

Walking in during happy hour we started worrying about the focus of the restaurant, as there was a huge bar stretching almost the length of the building, with few tables for eating. the six of us were finally ushered to a table in the far back, and we sat there for quite awhile before we got a waitress to get...

This is a popular place with parking across the street. Full bar and friendly service. We had BBQ Oysters, Truffle Fries, and Grilled Shrimp taco's with a couple of beers. Smaller portions but very tasty food.

Obviously this bar is extremely popular with locals as it was packed when we arrived. We decided to eat else where due to the noise level but the service was okay and the staff very pleasant.
