The service was outstanding. The menu has several options and all freshly made. I stopped for lunch. It did get busy so go early if you can. The flavors were very good. . A nice change. I would recommend it.

Ate there twice while visiting Lincoln this last week. Salmon salad first time was quite good but server could use some training. You do not take the ticket off the table with the tip on it before the customer leaves. (One of several infractions). Second...More
