We had a very nice dining experience here on a quiet weeknight. The friendly staff was attentive without being intrusive. Our food choices were the rockfish and hanger steak. Both were very tasty. Plan to have a leisurely meal here; it is not fast food....More

Had brunch here recently and loved it. Friendly service, great bevs, and a most excellent Eggs Benedict, my go-to travel breakfast. One of the best, very fresh ingredients and a strong cup o coffee. If you're anywhere near Carytown or The Fan, find it!
