A sure thing!

We had dinner here last night. There was live entertainment, a solo artist with a guitar. We started with fried green tomatoes, excellent appetizer. Then we all had the crab and shrimp burger, each with a different side, fries, onion rings, and black-eyed bean salad. The whole meal was great. The... read more

Love eating here. They have excellent organic cocktails, wide variety of great food. We've always gotten excellent service, heard good music, and enjoyed our dinners there. Such a great hangout.

Looks like a cute neighborhood bar, but the food is really good. Had the veggie flatbread pizza with a balsamic drizzle, Brussels sprouts with a mustard glaze, buffalo cauliflower, and the house Cabernet. When the train goes by they spin a wheel and if you are sitting on the seat that the wheel lands on, you get a free drink!

This is s traditional stop whenever I'm in town. It's all about the ambiance. Sit outside enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and the food is consistent. This visit I had the duck and goat cheese flatbread and it was excellent. My friend had a killer spicy chicken wrap and the Brussels sprouts are terrific! If you've never had fried green... More

This was our first stop on the way to my sister's house from the airport. This Midwesterner was reminded how great it is to sip beverages and snack in the open air. Expect good drinks, interesting craft beer selections and very tasty appetizers. The servers were very friendly and made knowledgeable recommendations. If I lived nearby, I would be a... More

Food overall decent. Service was garbage. Small changes could make food way better. Nice place to hang out, just a bit shy of really good..

Really enjoyed this place. Loved the quaint atmosphere and great service. The house made hummus is worth every cent. I got a burger and it was good. Another got the pulled pork bowl and said it was out of this world. I would have loved to give 5 stars, but dessert was disappointing. $6 for a small slice of average... More

We went for afternoon drinks and snacks and enjoyed it so much we returned the next day. It is an open air bar and restaurant and the weather was beautiful. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing, service outstanding and the food was great, too.

Still the best little place around for food. I absolutely love their menu and how they are always trying creative things. Their food is delicious! The staff is hit or miss though. More miss than hit. Drinks are pricey too.
