A Hidden Find In My Backyard

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... read 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

Nice, cozy ambience. Lobster bisque was awesome; the consistency of clam chowder. We had the spinach ravioli; nice and light and flavorful. Pistachio Mahi Mahi with Granny Smith apples was tasty. Brussels sprouts and spoon corn bread were fantastic!! And the carrot cake was a great finish; the cake was cool with a warm frosting. Will definitely come back to... More

Called to make reservation, got answering machine, left tele # in hope of getting a return call. Wanted to know if lamb chops are on the menu, since the menu was not on the web site. After researching other sites I found that the restaurant was for sale in a newspaper article. Never received a return call so we went... More

Quiet quaint little restaurant with good home cooking. Service staff is fabulous and friendly and I love the Brussels Sprouts. I noticed alot of people order the green bean cassarole so I guess that must be very good. Parking an issued up front but drive around back and you can find a spot and enter in that entrance.

You might drive right on by this little gem. It's hidden with small sign in a nondescript strip mall. There are a ton of bigger, flashier restaurant all over this area. The space is homey and cozy, although I did find it a tad dark. I found the service to be friendly and welcoming. My ice tea (served in a... More
