If a local had not told me about this place we would driven past it without a look. Lucky for us we had the inside scoop. This place has a great menu -- I had the mahi one night and the sea bass/ elk chop mixed grill the next. Great service too.

We recently had a brief stay in Jacksonville, and thanks to trip advisor we found this little gem!!! Oh My! I had the Tuscan Burger, and it was the best burger i have ever had in my life (and I have eaten many burgers). We were here for lunch, so it was quiet, which was fine with us. The decor... More

They have a pretty reasonable lunch menu. Reasonably priced, quiet and not to loud for a bar atmosphere. their greek salad was amazing. Sandwiches are also really good. Definitely a noce place for a quiet lunch.

I'm in Jacksonville once or twice a week. While there, I try to score points by taking the wife to lunch. The serving staff and cook understand the essence of time and don't waste it. Whether salad, entree, or sandwick, the food is superior. Prices are reasonable and staff is always pleasant and friendly. Beats any of the chain restaurants.... More

The atmosphere was interesting. Considering the high amount of chain restaurants in the area, my husband and I wanted to find locally owned venues and this didn't disappoint. Couldn't give it 5 stars because the quality of the food is not worth the price, but the food was good. The service could use a little work.

Jacksonville is overrun with chains and I wanted to try somewhere local. I'm glad I did. This restaurant is in a little strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is well worth a visit. My mom had the black and blue burger and said it was great. She had the fresh chips as her side... More

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and have NEVER had a bad meal! The staff treats you like family. You can sit on the sports bar side or not. There is also outside seating. Try the NY Strip. It is my favorite

I love the theme of the restaurant. It's like farmhouse chic! But I LOVE the burgers more than that. They combine rib eye, hamburger and sirloin to make their burgers - OMG!!! Plus you can eat outside, inside or at the bar. The staff are very nice and on time; meaning that they don't hover or let you sit too... More
