Loved this adorable place! Nicely decorated and extremely clean as well. We adored our chicken Quesadilla from the new chef and we thought our bartender Michele was great! Can't wait to go back!

Had dinner here with friends. Filet was good...But someone at our table sent theirs back and it was still very undercooked. Waitress was very nice. Place is clean. Ample parking. Great band played after dinner.
