Stopped in here for lunch with my mom because they had gluten free offerings. I really enjoyed my Caesar salad and my mom had a gluten free Caesar wrap. Good food, nice atmosphere.

Had the fish and chips which was delicious and big portions. Don’t forget to get the tartare sauce, it’s really good. Also had the chocolate and peanut butter brownie which was beautiful and again so big I could barely finish it (but I did 😋)....More
