Good Food, Great Environment

Everyday People is a great place for dinner. Not to be missed if in the area. Dinners are delicious and there are always great specials. Wine and drink selection are good and desserts delicious.

Welcoming staff, excellent food. I won’t hesitate to go back. I had the Tuna for lunch. It was nicely presented and had wonderful flavors.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. While you would expect the food to be delicious given its reputation (and it is), what you might not expect is the portion size. We wanted the pasta dish as an appetizer to split between the two of us before our main course. The waiter warned us that we should wait until after we... More

We camped out here two nights during our weekend in Douglas, and found the food, service, and drinks to be top-rate.

They offer good food and service. The down side of this place is you have to wait in line when they first open at 5:30. The line starts at about 5 to be seated at 5:30 to get a good seating location.

Consistently excellent food. Menu is inspired and ever-changing, using local food sources and seasonal, fresh foods. There is something for every palate on the menu. The gourmand will not be disappointed, and neither will the burger, soup and salad lover. In fact, I recommend the tomato boursin soup and ANY salad. There is no skimping on the good stuff, like...

Everyone said to get there early, so that you wouldn't have to wait, so we did. After enjoying our meal there, I can understand why people don't mind the wait, as it was so worth it! I had a filet, in a delectable sauce. The meat was so tender and flavorful, each bite was heavenly. My cousin had one of... More

We ate here last week on the recommendation of our innkeeper, and were not impressed. My husband ordered the gorgonzola pork chop, and I ordered a strange puff pastry parcel with shrimps. Within 5 minutes of ordering, our meals were on the table - this was no thin chop, it was a large one - no way could it have... More

We went at 730pm on a Sunday evening. Place was busy but we didn't have to wait. Hostess was prompt and polite. It was the kind of place you could be comfortable in smart-casual to dressy - think linen table cloths with butcher block paper. Small, seasonal menu - everything looked good. Plates were eye-appealing and well thought out. Our... More
