we just walked in but it was reasonably early. It is a small place so a reservation might be a good idea especially at a peak time.

They may be all cash now? They couldn't take credit cards due to some bank issue in December. Casual dress, very good service and food. No specific children's menu. They may fix kids something but is better for adults.
