Very busy, tight seating and quite loud the night we were there (lots of noise spilling over from the attached bar). Had high expectations that were dashed upon receiving our $10 app - a single, very mediocre summer roll which was immediately followed by a less than mediocre salad (obviously made in advance and left to sit and dehydrate for...

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant in Brevard. Outside seating is nice, however they were so busy we did not have the option and had to sit indoors, which was fine. Staff are great- friendly, fairly wide variety menu. My wife didn't like the chicken curry - however I thought it was awesome. We both liked the appetizer lettuce... More

Found this restaurant by accident as we just got done doing a scenic waterfall drive on 276. We were hungry and this was the first place we stumbled across. I had the best burger there. A sirloin burger with bacon,arugula and onions and a delicious white sauce. The waitress was pleasant and friendly as was the table next to us.... More

We always dine here when in Brevard, and they have yet to disappoint! The service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, whether you just came from hiking, climbing, or shopping.... The food.... is excellent. I recently tried their tasty Chicken Curry. The Square Root salad, Asian Chicken Wrap, Reuben, and Burgers will not disappoint. Note: The... More

Glad this restaurant has figured out how to accommodate visits during the in between meal periods - we arrived 4 pm before start of dinner and restaurant has menu to accommodate. Good service and innovative food. Desserts were also good and not typical. Would like to try during dinner some time. Strongly recommend!

We took our dogs on our hiking trip with us, so, eating out usually is not an option. after online research, we decided to try this place for outdoor seating with our four pawed friends. Our server started us and dogs with water, and kept their bowl full through out the lunch. This was a very nice touch - the... More
