We had a business dinner here. Ambiance is excellent. A bit noisy but great food. Mussels are amazing with soup. Lots of choices on craft beer. Business dinner with large crowd - suitable choice. If need for quiet business dinner, find somewhere else.

I've driven by this place dozens of times and finally had lunch with a friend and kicked myself for not doing it sooner. Quaint atmosphere and very friendly service. Food was delicious too.

The restaurant has a great feel to it and my wife and I love to sit at the bar. (Say hello to the bartenders, Whisper or Moe, if you sit at the bar.) The food is sophisticated and also very satisfying. The cheeseboard or smoked...More
