When people go out to have a cocktail, it is nice to have "fancy" food, but at a bar, you need some food that is not so "fancy". All appetizer items looked like a 5 star restaurant and it was for the bar.

Visited with my husband; loved the laid back outdoor atmosphere. We just sat at the bar...very comfortable. Excellent wine and perfect steak. Fresh salad a plus!

I don't think it is what it used to be. We were actually looking for a pasta dinner and thought that this was the place we used to go to. Very limited menu, food was so so but staff was great!

We went to breakfast there while at Kelley's twice. The food was great! The lady working seemed to be doing everything herself, but she did it all with a smile. Very pleasant on a beautiful summer morning.

This is a wonderful place to find a high-end drink but still relax outdoor on the patio in your shorts and sandals. Food is good and drinks are excellent.
