I went here when my husband was busy with business. I had the cheddar press hamburger. If was very tasty. My big praise though was for the truffle lemon mayo that was served with the yam fries. It was very good. Service was good.

We were walking on 8th looking for a bite to eat and walked in here. I had the Asian salad and my wife had the Caesar salad and we shared a plate of nachos. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.
