The atmosphere was good. Both the food and service were excellent! I had the Reuben and it was the best I have had in a long time. I had French fries with the sandwich and they were excellent. Nice and crisp but not burned and not greasy.

Never disappointed, but menu needs a refresh. Reasonably priced for the high quality food. Service can be slow at busy times
