This place was recommended to us and we loved it! We went in for a late lunch and provided excellent service!
The food was delightful. They have gluten free options and do a great job with keeping allergy related food separate.
I had the lentil and quinoa burger which was wonderful tasting!

Service was great. The ambiance was great. We ordered a cheese platter and it was good but just not a “wow” experience. I will include a picture. The blue crab linguine was delicious yet it could use a little more sauce.

Walked in without a reservation. No problem. Seated in a bar area which was quite noisy with loud music. My dish, grilled cauliflower, was scrumptious. Would ask for the main room next time. Noise affected my rating, not the food.

Prompt & efficient service. Extensive menu. Food was ok, not great. We were here a number of years ago and recall the food being better then.

....sandwich!! If you like Reuben Sandwiches you will love this! Recommended by the bartender when I ordered a Reuben...best ever! A full sandwich split was perfect, tasty and melt in mouth good! We also had dinner a few nights before, I ordered scallops and husband had the pork chops, delicious!!! Visited last night for drinks! Great place to go, crowded but all three times we were able to get a spot at the bar.
