“Awesome Place and Great Food - Check it Out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We ate here our last night in Brookings and what a wonderful surprise and such a change of pace from typical food available in the area.

The Melanzana Sandwich caught my eye (breaded eggplant topped with baby spinach, Roma tomatoes, roasted red peppers, cheese and garlic mayo on ciabatta bread) but I wasn't sure I cared for eggplant. Our waitress who happened to be one of the owners convinced me it was one of the best tasting sandwiches ever! I went ahead and ordered it and she was right. It was delicious and was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had.
My husband ordered the Hot Italian Sandwich (salami, pepperoni, provolone cheese on a baguette) and it was excellent and a little spicy. Both of our sandwiches came with a small side salad too.
While we were waiting on our food, we were served a very tasty rosemary-herb bread with an olive oil/balsamic vinegar dipping sauce.
It is hard to find a charming place like this with reasonable prices and unique food. Such a great alternative from typical restaurant food. Next time we are in Brookings we will definitely eat here again cuz there are many other items on the menu I'd like to try.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

What a great restaurant! I had the braised short ribs, delicious. The interior was fun and artful. Service was excellent and friendly. Some great local brew on tap, and wine, and full bar. From what we could find in this town, this would be hands down best for food and atmosphere and right on the Main Street. This would be a great find in any town, even San Francisco.

“A New Best find in Brookings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My wife's sister found this place sometime ago and raved about the food. So when we were in Brookings for our annual vacation from the heat of TX, we stopped in for dinner. The place is small but about the size of most in the area. The menu has excellent and there are specials. I had the rack of lamb for $24 and it was a steal at that price. My wife had chicken marsala and it was very good. the party of 4 had martinis, wine, appetizers and entrees and 1 desert and it was only $155, which is a very good price, especially when everything was so very, very good.
we have finally found a good and reasonably priced restaurant in brookings....not a small task.

Everything I've eaten here is great. Their portions are good, have a wonderful wine and beer menu and their food is excellent. Simple menu and have never been disappointed. Will definitely return. Fair prices for great dinner/lunch options.
