Love this place. Enjoy the wings and pizza. My favorite is Mondays nights crab and avacado salad. Very refreshing. Wish this would be a regular dinner option. Maybe for the summer.

We've been wanting to try this place and finally had the chance. We went on a Sunday around 6:30pm and there were only two other full tables. We really liked the atmosphere and chose to sit in a booth. Our server was very attentive and...More
