Ask for Charles, he makes the best lemon drops. Great ambiance, good happy hour menu. We ended up making a couple stops and came back because we liked it so much.

Six of us went for dinner and everyone's dinner came out hot and cooked exactly as they asked. Hubby had the pork chop, some had huge hamburgers and I had Hanger Steak. All very good. Service was excellent too.
