Great food and atmosphere

Nice variety on the menu and my son loved his meal. I had the sirloin myself and it was very moist and flavorful. Definitely not a restaurant if you're on a budget but again good food. Friendly and tentative wait staff.

Met my brother here while in the Detroit area. Menu well varied. We ordered salads, ahi tuna with veggies and the fresh red fish sandwich with baked potato. Salads were very large and the caeser salad very good though may want to ask for light on the dressing. House salad very good as well. The grilled fish sandwich was cooked... More

We both had salads (I had Alex's Salad $10.00 Bacon, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons accompanied with Clam Chowder $4.00, my wife had a Cypress Salad $16.00 Chopped crispy chicken tenders, pecans, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, croutons and ranch dressing) the New England Chowder was yum and the salads were as usual, always fresh and tasty.

Relaxing and delicious! Best burger ever! Juicy, fresh, roll was just as fresh. Server was informative, attentive, and very personable. Finished with chocolate cake and French press coffee. Prices were reasonable. Had lunch here with a friend while on a business trip. She picked very wisely! Wishing we had one in CT!
