We went here on a family gathering. We had about 15 of us. We had 2 servers and they were just excellent! Nothing was wrong with any of our orders. Our drinks were always filled and they were very attentive. The food was sooooo good! I couldn't eat it all but I sure tried! Everyone here was really on top... More

This used to be one of our favorite dining spots. Didn't seem as good the last couple of times we visited. Salads are really good but definitely get your dressing on the side - they put way to much dressing on the salads. The croissants are awesome.

This is a newer restaurant with beautiful, natural decor - lots of woods, mirrored walls, just very pleasant. Everyone at our table of 8 had delicious food.

Worst service ever. Food was not good. Restaurant is not equipped to service large parties. This is my first and last visit!

I've been to this place a couple of times and was never disappointed. The service is always good and the food tastes good. Generous portions and a nice house salad you have to try. The cabin-like feeling is nice, even though it's quite big and can get very noisy when there's a full house.

I have a lot of business lunch meetings here. The food is good, quick, reasonably priced, and they have healthy options. I really love their house salad and shrimp po-boy - best in this area in my opinion. I've eaten here probably 15 times in the last several years.

This restaurant has a "woody" feel...lots of stained wood walls with soaring wood ceilings...definitely a warm, coastall feel in terms of the décor. The service was spot-on...it is obvious that this small chain puts and up-fron emphasis on staff training. Our meal started with a shared platter of t-die-for honey drizzled croissants, a signature item here. The menu is varied,... More

It is pretty consistent and the service is pretty good also. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened. We do like the food.
