Was on a business trip and stopped in for dinner. What gem this place is. The bar is moderately stocked with an OK selection of whiskey, bourbon and scotches. The staff was excellent, some of the best service I have ever had. Really a nice...More

We were unsure about this gem due to its location. Fortunately we went and it is now one of our favorite places! If you are looking for something that is not BBQ or Tex Mex, this restaurant is a must!

We went there for the first time to try what the reviews say is a wonderful food. We arrived and waited to be seated. The waitress offered a table for 3 (we were 4 people). We asked for a table where we could the four...More
