I have been here many times over the years and it is still great to come back. The food is hearty and very satisfying. A perfect place to share with family and friends. I highly recommend it.

The staff was so amicable and knowledgeable of what to order. I wanted something light and my friend and I ended up sharing the cheese board. The dips and cheeses were amazing! I would definitely come here again when I am very hungry.

Had a long lunch. A real poet's hangout, even if somewhat loud. Food is good, and so is the service.

The noise level in the place makes normal conversation absolutely impossible. One would have to be able to read lips to engage in any kind of dialogue. Loved the food but will not return.
