Our server Laura had a snappy wit that we appreciated. I had the Pork Tostada special and hubby had the Chicken Club. Both were great! Nice house pinot grigio and a couple beers rounded out the meal. Would definitely come back again.

One of my favorite places in downtown Rutland to eat. I especially love the Ahi tuna. The staff is friendly, and service is great.

Excellent dining experience. Food and service was exemplary. The owner took time to talk with us extensively which impressed us. If you want to relax and appreciate your time away from home, this is an awesome place to eat or hang out.

I have been numerous times over the years. Tried many items on the menu and all were really tasty. Comfortable atmosphere. Casual dining. Reasonably priced. Definitely worth the trip!

Enjoyed a great salad for lunch. Service was terrific. Atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The salad was green with walnuts, dried cranberries and a maple dressing.
