Food was terrific, and prices were very reasonable for a nice atmosphere restaurant. Early bird special is a great option for food and drinks.

The Cesar salad has no anchovy taste. The angus beef brisket with gouda and blackberry BBQ sauce was good. House made chips are not hot or crispy. Restrooms are clean. Not a lot of ambiance. No wait for lunch.

My wife and I went in for lunch one day. The staff appeared as if it was bothering them that we came in (it was during lunch in the middle of the day). There were 5-6 open tables that had just been cleaned with more...More

We walked into this restaurant at seven p.m. and it was almost empty- that should have been our first clue. When we asked the owner/manager if it was too late to be served, he grunted and walked us to a bare table. Our server, a...More
