Reasonable prices for good food and service. It’s a little noisy when the restaurant is full but that adds to the ambiance. Go there with friends, it’s very enjoyable.

I am celiac and was able to eat there. It has been too long to remember what I had. I do remember the waiter helped me order. I don’t always get what I want but I do get something that is safe for me to eat
