Restaurant is charming and the food generous, fresh and well presented. Ample parking makes this restaurant a good choice for the bust location. Don't miss this one.

We went with another couple who love the place. Unfortunately, it was certainly not my idea of home cooked food at all. Not much on the menu was appealing, so I settled on the short ribs, which were recommended. I couldn't finish them due to the greasy taste and the sandwich my wife had was pretty average also. The décor... More

Start with the nicest, most competent, helpfull servers I have seen in years. Ask them about the menu. The portions are average priced and very large. They come with 2 small sides. That's it. No bread. No salad. BUT being so large it is difficult to finish dinner. Everybody leaves with a doggie bag. At our table we called it... More

Adorable decor. They have great food. Very large portions so haven't been able to try their dessert yet. I'm not a big fan of brussel sprouts but the mason jar knows how to do it right. Very cozy interior and fills up with locals very fast. Reservations might be a good idea. Attentive staff. Feels like you're eating at grandma's... More

Four of us to celebrate the birthday of a friend. We all ordered differently from Hamburger to Rack of Lamb and we were all four pleased. One of my dining companions is a surly professional complainer and even he seemed satisfied. The iced tea was fresh and very good, the service competent but not intrusive. It was very clean. I'd...

If you get a chance, try the tomato, blue cheese, and bacon soup!! Yum! Also, the brussel sprouts with pistachio was delicious. Food is fresh and bathroom was spotless!

Had lunch there with two retired buddies. I usually go with them just to get together seldom for the places they pick. This was a wonderful surprise! I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup with cornbread side. Both friends had the country crab burger. One had brussel sprout side- with pistachios! Other guy had mac and cheese. No one... More

Generous portions, choice of two sides with each entree. Note that one of your sides can be a salad. I ordered the house salad with poppy seed dressing. I thought it was salty. Others disagreed. My skirt steak was fine, nothing special. I ordered the Brussel sprouts. Mostly leaves sautéed in a pan. I forgot and my leftovers remained at... More
