Loved it! Good selection of beer on tap, more than one dish on the menu that I found appealing. Annoyed with trip adviser for forcing me to write 100 characters

I attended a luncheon meeting here and ordered the veggie pizza. I enjoyed the taste, freshness of ingredients and generous amount of vegetables. There were no complaints from others about their respective orders. Service was prompt and friendly. I plan on going back.

Came for a late night dinner and we shared the tuna appetizer. Meals were the bison burger (very good!) and the Pastichio (good, but like a large lasagna) certainly plenty of food and tasty Greek salad. Would be back for additional options.
