We sat outside on the tight patio one evening for a sunny dinner. Unfortunately the kitchen fan seems to vent right underneath the patio and we were sat close enough to it to notice. We had tired to go there for lunch but turned around when we saw how busy they were in the main restaurant, there was lots of... More

Great Old-Fashioned cocktail for $6, but that was the real only highlight. Taco Flatbread seemed to lack seasoning to give it any real flavor. Bleu Cheese soup that is a specialty of the place; was decent, not overpowering blue cheese taste.

We dined at this place on a Friday night. It was busy but was seated promptly. I ordered the pulled pork and Brisket combo which was good overall the Brisket was a bit over cooked but still had a good flavor.

My wife and I ate there on a Sunday evening. They weren't busy at all. In spite of the quite time, the service was nothing to write home about.

We stopped one day, mainly for a rest and a beverage, and the waitress was so nice that we came back the next day to eat. We opted for an outdoor table, but changed our minds when the bees showed up(my husband is allergic). The staff was exceptional, very accommodating and nice, and the food was very good.

Came in for a late lunch. The restaurant was very busy but they were able to accommodate my friend and I at the bar right away. We both got the chicken sandwich with red pepper aoli. It was fantastic. The staff was kind and helpful. Will recommend to others!

My sister and I enjoyed large portions of House Battered Cod and homemade coleslaw. Katie was an excellent server, friendly and attentive. The Manhattan was very good, and prices of food and drink were reasonable. If you are looking for an ideal place to have lunch, dinner, or just appetizers, this would be a good choice.

We read that there are homemade chips so we had to try it. All the food was great, the kids meals were actually sizable so that was good. The apple and fruit salad was giant and very fresh. Also had the fish tacos and hand battered cod and they were also very good. A great place to stop.
