“Nice little eating place.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

My family and I visited this local restaurant for the first time about 3 weeks ago. It has been open for a little over a year and I had heard good reviews from friends.

My daughter and I ordered hamburgers; my son had the chicken tenders from the Kids Menu and my husband had a patty melt. Overall, the food was decent. My hamburger was a bit dry (though I'd asked for it medium-well). My husband was more impressed with his patty melt. He said it was delicious! The meals are served with medallion-cut potatoes and a small salad topped with feta cheese. Both were absolutely enjoyable. My son was also pleased with his chicken tenders. They were savory and tender!

The prices are a tad high for the quality. We had a "Buy One, Get One Free" coupon which made it worth our visit. Otherwise, I'm not sure if I'd pay full price. The place is clean and nicely furnished. The service is minimal and courteous as you order your food at the counter and a server brings it to your table.

We will definitely return (with coupon in hand)... maybe next time we'll try their desserts... lots to choose from! I've got my eye on some baklava! :-)

“It was ok”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The food was decent but nothing extremely memorable. The service was ok but I waisted the place when it first opened. It's probably much better by now as I assume they were working out the kinks.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Very high quality food and service. I think Downey has no other that can compete with this restaurant. The only thing that I didn't like was the very big size of the portions. But the food is so delicious that you want to eat it all. Service is brilliant. You can feel almost NAVY standards of training and discipline.
