We had a short wait for a table on a busy Friday night but it was definitely worth the wait. This cozy, family run restaurant seems popular with locals and it’s easy to see why. The food and service were excellent. And while we were...More

The reason for this low rating was not the quality of the food, which was edible. If I were rating the food alone I would have given it a 2-3. The thing that left me angry and swearing under my breath as we walked out...More
