Crab nachos sounded delicious: white gravy with crab meat over chips. Yuck! Shrimp tacos and chicken quesadillas blah. Food took a while, but apparently on weekends with breakfast service till noon, it will take longer to transition to lunch. Will not return.More

Good friendly service, good food. Larger than it looks, easier to get a table than some of the more trendy places. Happy hour on Saturdays also.

Any experience for brunch on Sunday is enhanced by the excellent service by Kristy. She remembers us every time and know exactly what we want! Omelettes are fluffy and delicious!

Went on 1/2 price burger night. Family members got the burgers, they were good. They are not gluten free so after talking to our sever - ask for Summer she was awesome- worked out what I could get. Got the London broil, very good.

Hubby and I went for breakfast after church. Food was delicious and so many choices it was hard to decide. We sat outside, service was a little slow. But, if you’re not in a hurry it’s fine. We will go again soon.
