Walking in and smelling water damage instead of food is never a good sign, and it certainly doesn't help the appetite. The caprese salad was bland tomatoes and mozzarella, served with sliced romaine - and zero basil. Appetizer crab cakes couldn't stay together enough to even get them on fork, yet had ok flavor. The entree, though, shouldn't have been... More

Decor and atmosphere is excellent. Food was great as was the service. My friends and I enjoyed an excellent meal with enough room for laughter and on a budget that won't break the bank. Would definitely recommend.

We travel regularly to Europe and we know how a Schnitzel should be prepared and how it should taste. This place serves an excellent Schnitzel. The food was excellent and the service was good. The place has a beautiful old bar and is stocked with numerous bourbons and other liquor. One minor disappointment was that they did not have and... More

We went in for dinner and had a great time, Mira was very nice to us and we must have talked with her for an hour or so. I ordered the goulash with beef and it tasted great, I will definitely stop there again when I'm in town!

Charming staff. Crispy and fresh Bosnian salad. Tasty hamburger with sauerkraut on homemade roll. Homemade coconut cream pie topped with meringue. The best food we've had in several days on the road.

This place is awesome!!!! HUGE bourbon selection and Mary is so knowledgeable. Every bourbon she recommended was better than the one before it. Had a wonderful combo plate appi and an over the top Wiener schnitzel. You have got to check this place out, you will not be disappointed.

Popped in for a quick lunch; wanted something light after a day on the Bourbon Trail and more planned. Opted for the Greek Salad and had grilled chicken added. Well-made. The server was extremely friendly; she had immigrated from Bosnia 20 years prior. Large restaurant - will be back.
