We visited for my wife's birthday and the meal was one to remember. The greeting was warm, friendly and throughout the service was excellent. Food was amazing and very varied.

I would highly recommend eating here. The atmosphere right when you walked in was great! Such lovely decor. It felt very comfortable yet private. Service was very professional yet friendly. The server clearly knew what she was doing and always made sure we had everything we needed. My favorite part however was by far the food. Everything on the plate... More

Eat lunch outside for quiet meal, fine service, great fish tacos and burgers, among other things. Come early; it fills up quickly. Not cheap, but quality counts.

We really enjoyed our visit here. We sat on the deck for lunch after a bike ride and had a beer and my daughter had the most wonderful chicken tenders. If we had eaten, I am sure I would give 5 stars. Everything about this place - from food to service to presentation was exceptional.
