I went with a friend for lunch. The $7 special included a delicious soup, lasagna with a side of veggies, a decadent brownie and a glass of juice. The patio was lovely and the service was excellent.

Wanted to see music on a Saturday night. Paid admission. My husband ordered one shot of liquor listed on the menu at $10. I ordered a non-alcoholic drink at $4. We left early because the musicians sounded extremely amateur. I handed the cashier my card...More
