Great atmosphere. Service is dependent on wait staff. Food can be great, but variable. Fish tacos are great.

Always delicious wood-fired pizzas, but the salads and entrees are great too. We think the goat cheese pizza is the bomb! Love watching them work in the open kitchen with that gorgeous wood oven! I don't recommend sitting upstairs if you want to have a meaningful conversation. Its quite noisy up there.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in town. But after their change in menu and an unforgiveable Thanksgiving dinner 2012 arranged for our entire family, I am quite reserved about suggesting or even trying again.

The decor and atmosphere here makes it a nice change of pace. The colors and levels to the dining area give it some neat character. Variety on the menu is good and the desserts are worthwhile! The "Pulled Pork Bomb" was tasty! The sangria did not have as much flavor as we might have liked, but otherwise everyone really enjoyed... More

First night on vacation, wanted good food after a ten hour drive. Called to make sure they were opened, arrived at 8:30, was told they closed the kitchen. We mentioned that we called and were told they were opened. They told us we took too long to get there. No worries, we went across the street and had the best... More

Hi, This correspondence never took place. Our hours are posted on our door 11:30-8:00 pm Tuesday -Saturday and on our website (you can verify this) We do not take reservations after 7:30. This review is a personal attack and has no merit based on the food in the restaurant. We would like to request that it be removed. Thank you... More

The food is good and it's interesting. Not your run of the mill restaurant, but a place to have fun with a variety of things to try. Lots of fun in the outdoor dining area! The staff is great, the location is great, and it's just a lot of fun!

Setting is inside or feels like outside in an old garage bay or the real outside. Decoration is beautiful, food always good, never had bad service. Convenient location on Main Street. Prices are reasonable, great presentation with delicious food.

If you want a restaurant that can consistently be counted upon to provide very good food with some unique selections available, a wonderful wine list and great service all at a fair price, this is a great place to dine. We've eaten here many times, both lunch & dinner, and from basics like a burger to their traditional pot roast... More
