Restaurant was within walking distance to our hotel. We picked up food and went back to our room for a quiet couples night. Food was really good. Gravy tasted funny but otherwise good food and friendly staff.

Met some friends for a nice dinner. Very casual atmosphere and we were sat at a table instantly. The waitress was very attentive and the food service was very fast. The ribs and fried shrimp were delicious. Will definitely be back.

We had the soup and salad and they were amazing. The chicken tort has a bite, but not overwhelming. Staff was friendly and fun, kept us laughing. The newspaper at the table is hilarious. Very good food.
