Husband had tomato basil soup which was excellent. The dressing on my salad was really nice. The veggies were lovely, with beans, onions, and mushrooms. My steak was cooked just right and arrived nice and hot. Dessert was good and service was excellent. Wish I lived in the area so that I could return!

If you want food that's absolutely delicious this this the place to be! Not your usual boring fare; up scaled favorites with unique flavor twists. Delicious food/good selection of craft & domestic beers and wine/friendly & efficient staff. 10/10. Thanks for the best meal of our vacation.

We visited this place for lunch. The food was great. The restaurant has a nice ambience and great service. I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap with loaded potato soup. If you're looking for a quick nice lunch place, I recommend walrus.

I had the chicken-broccoli pasta. The broccoli was overcooked and the cheese sauce was Velveeta-like, but the pasta was OK. My husband had the crab cakes, which had been puréed. There was no texture and very little flavor. The lemonade was powdered, and not even good powdered! The server did not check on us after our food arrived. We will... More

The food here was good but seemed expensive for the area. Their beer selection us good, although I didn't partake at this time.

We had the chicken chipotle pizza. It was amazing! Nice South American flavor with the black beans and seasonings. They are tucked in a little strip mall, but has a great atmosphere. The staff is friendly. If you are one to rate bathrooms, this one is a 9 on a 10 scale. The sink is a bowl on top of... More

Good Bar Food and Sports Bar Vibe. We grabbed burgers and fries after a long day of travel. Easy to locate and clearly a local hangout.

Ate here for lunch today. The air conditioning was on even though it was only 55 degrees outside, so it was very cold. The food arrived and our crab cakes were overdone and the cheese on the ravioli was a bit clumpy. Not the best!
