“Lunch versus Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lunch is excellent-great selection, service, guality. Dinner is marginal. Some good, some bad. Steaks are risky. Dinner service good but not great

“We'll be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We had lunch in the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It looks like they have put a lot of work into the interior. We each had a sandwich and were very impressed with the quality. My sandwich had turkey and fried green tomatoes. What impressed me most was that they turkey was actually turkey--not some sandwich meat they bought in a deli. My husbands BLT with avocado was just as good, with a nice spicy bite to it. The prices were good, and after looking at the dinner menu we hope to be back to try that.
