Went here with my wife and enjoyed the shrimp appetizer, scallops and lamb kabob. Flavors were excellent and succulence of meats was as good as you could ask for. Very simple family feel inside and value for money.

I don't recall, but if you want a fireplace, try Santorini in Greek Town. It's my favorite place to go on a cold night.
