My wife and I came here twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not fancy. But portions are plentiful and uniformly good. Their burgers with onion rings are delectable. And as a BYOB, It's very affordable.

Nice restaurant right next to Canal and 1 block from the bridge. It has 2 levels and backyard sitting area. I was there with my family for lunch and ordered beat salad, salmon sandwich and grill chicken sandwich. All was good.

The hostess seemed utterly astounded that we didn't have a reservation, but eventually led us to a table anyway. Next, the manager appeared and angrily demanded to know why we were sitting at the wrong table. We had to pick up our menus and drinks...More
