This is a reliable place to go for lunch when you're out shopping or strolling. There's a kid's menu, which makes it family friendly. The service is almost always poor, and the waiters often mix up the orders.More

Took my significant other and cousin to dinner near her new upscale condo in downtown Bethesda. We had two different types of the grilled salmon while my cousin had the Tuna Nicoise. Liz had glass of Chardonnay. Place was quiet so we could talk.

Very very average, just plain ole eats. Went for brunch. Bloody mary had nice bacon, 2 olives, celery, lemon & lime. Bacon was best part. The food was just plain. Good, hot, but just plain. With so many other wonderful choices, why go here ever??More
