I've been here many times and I've never had a bad experience. I always love their salmon. Last night I had the salmon and the skin was crispy. I'm not usually a fan of skin unless it's super crispy. I ate every bite. The spicy...More

I enjoyed a solo trip on a night there was a live band a block away in the park. Food was excellent. Would be a great date night on a Friday with the band in the summer.

I have been here before and it certainly wasn't as bad as tonight. Everything was off. The service left A LOT to be desired. Both burgers were desert dry and the Beef Stew was Onion Soup. The condiments were vacant from the burger platters. Again,...More
