A rustic setting in the old train depot. Excellent salads and wraps—large size and not cheap. To substitute cole slaw for chips was an extra $2.50. Waiter was nice but didn’t seem well-informed.

Fun, yummy pub fare. Great spot for a beer and a sandwich on the patio. We like the crab cakes and grouper sandwich. My husband loved the philly cheese steak sandwich. Good spot for kids too.

Dinner is served every night except Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm
