Excellent neighborhood restaurant

Despite never remembering about this great neighborhood restaurant, it provided a great place for a birthday celebration for a group of us the other night. There were 6 of us dining and I had a reservation so they gave us the small private dining room in the front. It is cozy and comfortable and... read more

Haven't been there for awhile. Excellent service. I ordered the sauerbraten. Got 4 slabs of badly over cooked, unmarinated pot roast over a bed of noodles. Very poor for their special.

Comfortable and casual restaurant with outstanding food and service. Started with the carrot ginger soup- delicious. Had broiled cod and red pepper sauce and my wife had grilled mahi mahi. Both meals were fabulous. The server Ashley was intuitive and attentive. My wife really didnt want to sit at the table where we were seated, so we were placed in... More

I've eaten here several times, always with friends or family. It's a little too loud when it's full, but still worth it for the food and atmosphere. The menu changes frequently and I can always find something good on it. Desserts are made in-house and are very good. Service is fast. Sometimes have to stand in line for a table... More

I had lunch with two old friends, whom I hadn't seen in years; the food was fast, delicious and not incredibly expensive. The atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming.

I love the daily special menu. I have had a variety of food here and I love it. The place looks like an old pub in a neighborhood, so you expect great food. Service is fast too. Frog legs at dinner were great!
