This place was recommended by someone at the Antique Auto Museum as a nice place to eat while on our way to West Branch. He was spot on when he described it as being "somewhat eclectic, but nice". The decor had a fresh, edgy, artsy feel. We were seated immediately and received excellent service. The only "hiccup" was the unpleasant... More

Normally l am very happy with what I order. But this is crazy, I got a side order of asparagus and there was five pieces. It cost $5.00, that's a dollar a piece! Over priced underwhelmed.

We have eaten there many times and always had good food and service. We have been there as a family and as a couple, it is appropriate for both. Make sure you try the flaming cheese!

My group of friends came on a Sunday evening at 6. The service and food was great, and the atmosphere was relaxing. We sat by the fireplace and it was quiet.

Finally, a great sit down restaurant on east side. Great menu, fantastic bar, fun atmosphere for date night or night out with girlfriends. Love the ahi tuna salad and Mediterranean chicken. Hubby loves Cuban sandwich. Check out drink specials on weekdays.
