The food is well above typical tavern quality and variety. The soups, sandwiches and salads in particular are always well prepared and presented. The service is consistently good and prompt even during busy periods.

The atmosphere is great - not too noisy - you can have a conversation with friends and hear yourself think, but it has a heartbeat. The decor adds to the place. I ordered a beet and goat cheese salad and it was well plated and tasted... More

I will definitely go back. The roasted beet salad I had was over and above what I thought I was getting, the side bread was a tasty treat. My friends salad looked excellent as well. Great service!

Two of us had lunch here and were disappointed in the quality and taste of the food. The corned beef on the Grilled Rueben sandwich was pretty dry and almost 'jerky-like'. The chicken in the Parmesan Crusted Chicken Caesar salad was not crispy and actually tasted old to me. The service was great and it is a cute place but... More

Dennis and his staff of mostly young people always greet you with a smile. This is a very old building, kept clean and welcoming, in the center of town. The locals are here because the food is always good, the menu updates periodically, and the price is reasonable. We eat here a couple of times a month. If you are... More
