Very cool place. Beautiful, bright flavors in the food, great service. A very unusual (and yummy!) menu. It gets loud, so don't plan on any intimate tete a tetes. Great location especially if you're here for Spring training games. If you visit, DO NOT MISS (I know I'm not supposed to type in all caps, sorry...) the Stetson chopped salad.... More

Went with family members who love this restaurant and most everything was very good. Some items (my pork chop, my wife's salmon, a couple of the sides) could have had better overall flavor and texture as they felt overcooked. Outstanding wine list!

Saw the reviews for this restaurant and had to try it. The reviews for the chopped salad were dead on. So good and interesting. We split the salad and also split the Korean ribs. Everything was great and our waiter, Lou, was very friendly.

This is a fun restaurant with great food. The reason I also come here though, is the Chopped Salad. It is truly the best!

Went there with family and friends for a dinner on a Friday evening. The building is small with relatively low ceilings. It was noisy overall in the restaurant and the table next to ours was occupied with people who were clearly wasted and were talking to each other by screaming. We immediately wanted to move to another table before ordering... More

Ate with our company party of ~50. They did a great job of hosting a large group and still maintained their approach of showcasing what they were serving even though it was probably a little tough to do. The server explained the dishes being served and why they were recognized as some of the best food around. Everything was great,... More

The name of the restaurant alone as intriguing. I had the Stetson Chopped Salad. There wasn’t any description on the menu but a reader review stated that he loved the salad so much he used a photo of it for his screen saver. It was the best salad I have ever had in my life.

The chopped salad, ahi tuna and bacon donuts make for a tasty meal at this pleasant spot in old town. Mary Ann is your girl. She knows how to take care of a customer.
