Nice selection of food and a relaxed atmosphere. It has indoor and outdoor seating. It is a great place to meet up with friends.

The restaurant was not busy but it took forever to get our coffee. My husband ordered two coffees but she brought one. We asked for another and never received it until the food was served.
