“Was excellent...now struggling”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This place was great. Now it seems to be struggling a bit. Maybe Hurricane Sandy had taken its toll on the family run business behind the scenes. But when I was last there in November they weren't able to provide their usually full menu. The kitchen was slow and the wait staff distracted. Hope to see them up and running again soon. During the summer The place was fantastic. Hope to see them back up and running soon. Gordon Ramsay would curse up a storm if he went back there now. Oh and in got the meatloaf. Gross. Burnt. Dry.

“Don't miss this place! A real gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Small, but that food is amazing, and everyone that works there are so warm and friendly and kind! Service is a little slow- but I'll take it any day, because re food is made to order. Excellent place!

“A Real Hidden Treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

This restaurant appeared on Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" show. My family and I have eaten there several times since the show aired and have never been disappointed with the quality of food. Friends have also joined us and have raved about their meals as well. The help are very friendly. Our only complaint is that service tends to be a bit slow, so make sure you allot plenty of time. Food is cooked fresh daily so the wait is worth it. We love their hamburgers, meatloaf and chicken pot pies!
