Delicious food with several nightly specials. The pork chops and roasted sides were wonderful. The shrimp special was also good. You may want to make a reservation. The specialty drinks were good although a bit pricey.

We serve breakfast every day of the week and lunch and dinner Monday thru Saturday. The Food Fresh, local and organic whenever possible!

Nick's passion for food blossomed several years ago. JR began taking Nick to work with him when Nick was 14 years old. He washed dishes, prepped food items, plated desserts and made pizzas. Since then, he has spent time as a Kitchen Manager, Line cook in Door County, Sous Chef at Chives Restaurant for 5 years and wanting to expand his knowledge of food, took a seasonal position for the summers of 2011 and 2012 at the Harbor View Hotel & Resort on Martha's Vineyard in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
