We ate here based on the reviews. I had a grilled chicken sandwich. It was so bad I could only get one bite down. It tasted burnt and it was very tough. Don't go for the specials between 3 and 5 as they are not...More

Nice decor. Menu is varied with sandwiches, burgers, seafood, pizza and Italian dishes. They offer beer, wine. We had the soup and half sandwich special and pizza. Everything was delicious. Generous portions, fresh ingredients, prices reasonable. Waitress was very attentive. We enjoyed our lunch.

It’s a fun place to go for couples dinner. The food is good, with a lot of choices, and large portions. Beer was cold. The service was great. The night we were there they had music which was very good.

We love the cheese bites and garlic parmesan wings! Tried some other items, but prefer these. Cute decor, but chairs a bit uncomfortable. Sometimes bathrooms need attention, since they are so busy.

Went to lunch on the advise from some friends while in Ocala. So glad we went. The cheese bread appetizer was excellent. I could have had that for my whole meal, but I had to share. The burger was juicy, tasty and cooked to perfection....More
