We have been here several times and each time the food and service was great. I highly recommend the Tomato basil soup. I have never had anything that was not good. The staff is friendly and they certainly make you feel welcome.

Both were amazing! The chicken salad had a sweet flavor with fresh grapes and what appeared to be candied pecans (mmmm!!!!!). My husband ordered the Reuben... More
