“return visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Stopped here a couple times last summer and had good meals. There menu selection was fresh and the dinners tasty. NOT THIS LAST TIME. Ordered a patty melt, the hamburgers were frozen patties, like the cheap ones. The bread was not toasted and soggy from the grease. Very disappointed. Question if we will go back again. We did notice a diffrent chef at the grille.

“Great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Stopped here to eat last night with a friend and was pleasantly surprised!! My friend had been there a few weeks ago and recommended we try it for dinner. At first glance, I was a little skeptical, but once inside I was pleased. What a cute little place!! The owner was very personable and helpful. The music was awesome, kind of a reggae/alternative mix. I had the pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel bun and it was great! The bun was crispy on the bottom, so it did not get soggy after the pork was on it. Fresh cut fries were really good too! My friend had the gyro and loved it! They only serve beer and wine, but have quite a selection of each. And the prices aren't bad at all. Will definitely be back!!

“One of our favorite places to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We found this great place during a visit to town when we saw some people dining outside on a warm summer night. The specials board said, "coconut curry salmon." I said, "We have to try that place," so we did and loved it! My husband got a seafood medly pasta that was declicious and I got the Greek chicken wrap that was grilled w/ veggies and dip. We loved everything and have been back twice with our friends and now they love it. The service is great and there is a nice selection of beers and wine.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I ordered their gyro with homemade fresh "Tzatziki "sauce...it tasted like mayo...no dill to be seen
This is how it is made:
2 (8 ounce) containers plain yogurt
2 cucumbers - peeled, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
3 cloves garlic, peeled
