I visited here after seeing Les Miserables at the Tennessee Theater. My friend and I split crab cakes and a vegetable dish. They were both delicious. We splurged and got a chocolate torte for dessert. We were so delighted with our choice.

Food was great. Service was great for a group of twelve celebrating two graduates. Relaxed atmosphere but service was attentive.
