Just a short wait with a refreshing drink. All staff is friendly and helpful. Appetizer and meal selections are varied and tasty, with good selections for children too.

We had a great meal at Center St. I had the "Dirty B@$t@rd" Sausage plate. It was tasty and well cooked. The restaurant was busy but not overly loud. We'll be back.
