We arrived for lunch just as the door opened and it was a good thing as it became very crowded and noisy. Overall our meal was very good and not overpriced. Our server was very good and kept right on top of everything. I have eaten lunch there before and will continue to do so on occasion.

After a 20 minute wait, we were finally seated, although there were "reserved" empty tables. The food was delicious, a good reuben sandwich and a cobb salad, and their fabulous fried pickles. Always fun to come cack, but management could use a little help.

My husband and I were visiting with my family in the area. They told us we had to try this place and we had to get the fried pickles. They have great food & their pickles & homemade horseradish sauce are the best I have ever had. Just ignore google maps and use the 10th street entrance to the restaurant.

My husband and I went for lunch and both had the beef on a kummelwick with fries. They were delicious with a horseradish sauce and an au jus dip. The wait staff were courteous, friendly, and efficient. Great out of the way place.

This place is AMAZING. they have the BEST shrimp burgers EVER and their desserts are fresh hand made there in the restaurant. Lunch is affordable, but dinner is pricey. Service is always excellent. Cant beat this place for lunch!

have only been here once before for an "ok" lunch, but my friend picked this for her birthday dinner. not so great. no wonder I hadn't returned in over 2 years. everyone raves over the fried pickles, so we tried them. NOT impressed. didn't taste any dill--just grease--unless you dipped them in the sauce, which I did, to disguise the... More

Hidden on a side street behind massive oak trees is this little gem in an unassuming little building. Extremely friendly help, nice lunch menu choices with a daily special. I had salad with a very nicely seasoned mahi mahi on it that was quite good. Have not gone to dinner yet. Though small, seating is in two rooms with the... More
