Local - Great Atmosphere

The Pork Shanks & Applesauce (Greek Style) is the Bees Knees. They were tender, juicy, and flavorful. Service was great with a great vibe in the restaurant. I would highly recommend eating here! Everyone with my firm loves eating there when we are in town which is several weeks out of the year.

The place is rather small and the food is okay. Usually pretty crowded by locals who like to reminisce about how good the place used to be or when it was the only one in the area but the place is rather small and finding a parking is horrible. The decor is not really nice, busy and very old. Food... More

A group of us decided to eat here. We were pleasantly surprised by the offerings on the menu. When the food came we were even more pleased. The food tasted fresh, recipes were well thought out and the food was delicious. A tiny bonus was that it was attractively plated. I ordered the fried zucchini which was wonderful. Thick slabs...

Got there a little late, but luckily they took us because there were still some big parties of people eating. Everything was delicious and they customized my sandwich for me. I asked if they could turn the chicken ceasar wrap into a salmon one and they did. Was super happy about that (i don't eat chicken) and apparently they liked... More

Wow were we surprised!! Home made chips and salsa as soon as we sat down and ordered drinks. As a result of the superb quality of the chips and salsa, we ordered Mexican food which was superb!! Don't miss the Monday night Mexican special menu.

We had lunch with about 19 people and the service was quite good. Our server was timely and seemed to care about our satisfaction. All of our meals were excellent, from the Greek Salad with chicken to the Portobello mushroom sandwich and chicken wings. The price was a bit high for the area, so I would not say this was... More
