This is an awesome little spot for outdoor dining. The swinging tables are just too cool. The service and food were great. However, I would like to see the staff tell the patrons to stop throwing food to the birds. Gross.

Food was okay. We sat outside as inside was a little outdated but outside needed a little updating as well. Not the best, but not the worst. Baked sweet potatoe was cold inside. Had the fish tenders were very greasy.

This restaurant is fantastic. The outdoor seating is a must with the swinging picnic tables. The food was very good, the burgers are a must. The only downside is the wait. There always seemed to be a line.

This place is not good and I don't know why it has any good ratings. Ordered prime rib, it was flavorless and cold. Had a side of sweet potato..this was ice cold. Never had a cold potato given to me at a restaurant. Stay away!

Went for lunch. My husband's order came out wrong and was quickly corrected. I had the chicken taco salad, which was good but nothing spectacular.

The Ruben and the french burger were great, we loved the loaded potato. The portions are large and and the patio swing chairs were fun!

My husband ordered a burger, it came out cold. Not just from temp but cold. Food safety is not a strong point here.
