13 tables, limited seating, may have a wait. Menu is limited but everything is very good. Service is good. May be may be a bit stressed at busy times. Portions are good to large.

Amazing food. Left way too full to function. The staff was all very friendly and our waitress was very helpful and knew everything about all the food, which is great because i had questions. I highly recommend this cute little hidden restaurant!!

We've tried this place over many years, really hoping for this small mom and pop place to get better, but no so. After a while you have to just give up. Most occasions it's only my wife and I in there, during off hours. With...More
