Staff had trouble seating large party even after offering to split up but once they got over the shock of a 12 person party they were great. Food was good. Place was clean. Reasonable prices.

Cosy and friendly, sit out or dine in like a neighborhood bar and restaurant should be. Sit out in the sun on warm days or find your self a spot around the bar. Casual food in a friendly atmosphere.
