The menu is full of great choices and very different. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful when trying to make an entre choice. The scallops are to die for!

New to the area and have been trying new places. The service was good and the manager checked in with us. The food was good and the menu had a decent selection. I would go back.

I went there on a Friday for lunch with a few friends. The waitresses werent that attentive or friendly. I ordered a burger. It was just ok. It was filled with cheese as stated but it was dry and the hand-cut fries were greasy and limp. I doubt I will ever return.

The chicken salad was delicious. We appreciate the fresh ingredients and "from scratch" cooking. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

This was our second visit and both times the food has been good. Tasty fresh ingradients. My chicken portion was very large and enjoyable had two meals with it. It is nice to have A variety of cuisines in the area.
