On a whim (we were actually on our way to The Nines a couple of doors down) we stopped into this little restaurant for an early Sunday evening meal. The tables and restaurant (and bathroom) were spotlessly clean. The service was prompt and courteous. For...More

We went at 5 pm on a Saturday night to beat the college crowd, a table was available and the experience began. There were a few pictures on the menu for the rookies like us, but honestly they weren't very appealing. We split a few...More
