The food is really good. KInda pricey. They do not have a lunch special. Seem to have a very large employee turnover. New faces all the time. Ask for Savanna! You won't be dissapointed

Yes, please call the restaurant. They may have special menu not on the website. They have an excellent location on Main right in the midst of town in a lovely old building with courtyard out back.
