“Good food off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

A quirky restaurant - off the beaten paty - good food - if you eat outside it will be smokey - ate here over New Years Eve and the fix price menu was good. Family friendly and the wait staff seems happy to be working there.

“Good, But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

We have eaten there for both lunch and dinner. The sandwiches and the entree salads are a better choice than the burgers and it is a tad expensive for lunch, about $13 per person plus drinks and tip. It is much more of a bargain for dinner with very good entrees at reasonable prices. Service is excellent.

“Great Dining in Fairfax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This restaurant has great food, and the service is fantastic!! There are weekend specials based on market availability of seafood. They will gladly substitute and adjust any item ordered. It is a little pricey, but the food is definitely worth it!! On Sunday mornings, they have a delicious brunch buffet, which you can add Mimosas and Bloody Marys to for a small charge!
