We were here a few months ago and have talked about returning. Tonight we did and had a great experience.9 From the drinks to our food everything was superb. We are looking forward to going upstairs in the summer and visiting their outside eating area.

Dropped shortly after they reopened from renovation. Sat at the bar and were openly joined into the regulars. Very friendly place. We had great service and wonderful food. Will definitely go back as there were multiple menu items we wanted to try.
