This place is a regular lunch or dinner spot. The service is excellent and we love the decor. The food is consistently good and has only gotten better over time.

I guess you could say we are regulars at this restaurant- and the amazingly consistent and outstanding meals are at the heart of the many great reviews. Such a solid experience and atmosphere. Definitely developing to be a staple for the Madison area.

Went here one night after they had some sort of farmers market event. Didn’t know what to expect but was blown away by the service, food, and drinks! Highly recommend this place. The short rib was amazing.

Daily menu selections. Vegetables and fried chicken are the best. Bread Pudding is one large square and heated. Pot Roast has an unique taste and try the cornbread. Service is excellent.
