“Fantastic ribeye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

First time eating here. Decided to 'try it' while meeting friends from out of town. Tried the fried Greek tomatoes appetizer - a delightful blend of flavor and textures. We all independently decided to try the blackened ribeye with fried spinach (a new experience). All of us felt the ribeye was one of the best steaks we had ever had which is saying something for 4 folks over 60! The fried spinach was light and very tasty. We shared the no flour chocolate cake and it too was delicious. Feel like the prices were reasonable for the quality of food. I've certainly paid a more for steaks that were no where near as good. Our server, Aisha, was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and provided excellent service. Will definitely be back.

“Unexpected Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The food blew my expectations away. The Butternut Squash soup is fantastic. Atmosphere is just average, but in fairness I was alone in town on business.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Truly one of the best dining experiences we have enjoyed on a trip. I loved the chicken breast stuffed with apples, figs, brie in an apple cider jus. My husband had a Hawaiian fish that had been flown in that day - delicious preparation. Unpretentious but very nice ambience. Good wait staff. And a good value for the quality of the food.
