The food is fantastic, along with the service. It all come with a great atmosphere... you have a choice of dining inside or out on their patio...but you have to try it...you’ll be glad you did.

Braised short ribs had lots of flavor. Spicy margarita very tasty. The flight of ice creams were delicious, chocolate cayenne, chocolate mint chip, very fresh and so was the raspberry sorbet.
