My wife and I had the daily specials, which were well prepared and... More

I was able to get in early and setup some things prior to the event no problem. The best way I can describe the service for our event was that the staff was... More

We so enjoyed ourselves, the server was very friendly and attentive and the owner stopped by our table to chat. Overall I'd recommend it and we will... More

We had the chicken alfredo and shrimp alfredo. Our waitress was very attentive and always checking on us for more drink or water refills. The only issue we had... More
