“Fabulous, fun”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

What is not to like about this place? We dined there last month and were totally blown away. What a cool, funky vibe. You can't help but smile at the prom pictures on the wall. Our server was incredibly knowledgable, particularly about the beer and wine. And they have some GREAT choices, very different. He also knew about pacing, which is a real art for a server. Spot on every time.

Wonderful, varied menu with something for everyone. I could have ordered 10 things and been happy with any of them. Even the "small" plates are enough if you have a salad (also generously portioned). They happily split plates for you with no upcharge...very classy. We had several desserts. Don't miss the homemade cookies and ice cream. Too die for! And since I could not decide between vanilla or chocolate ice cream, they brought both. The chef even came out and chatted for a bit. We felt like friends, not just customers.

This place is a real gem and not to be missed. We live in Tampa (4 hours away) and I am already thinking of driving back one weekend just so I can enjoy this place again. Bravo!

“Hog Fish”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Unique, funky atmosphere. Looks like a 50's diner on the outside and folks that dine there regularly dress in their 50's attire. Never heard or had hog fish before so I tried it. I learned it was a white fish caught with a spear. It was fabulously prepared. The chef made his way around to each table to make sure everyone was happy with their meal.

“The Palm Beaches Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Just discovered this great restaurant. Had dinner their with friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was attentive feeling rushed. The atmosphere is eclectic - its located in the soda fountain area of a a 50's era drug store. But don't let the location fool you - The chefs prepare fresh, well presented entree's and delectable desserts. Its is just small enough to feel cozy without being crowded and not so large as to get lost in the masses. The owners and chef will stop by to ensure everything is to you liking. Try Ken's Peanut Butter Pie - trust me.....

Enjoyed an fun evening out with friends in this unique restautrant! This converted old drug store still features the original counter, adds to the original, fun and funky atmosphere. The food was outstanding - menu will cater to everyone's tastes. Service was exceptional and owners even stopped by chat. Will be returning!!

“Different restaurant”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Was rec via trip advisor. Design of this place is cool and food was ok but not more. They make their own way of cooking and doesn't really pull it off. Service fantastic. Prices high for quality of food. Wouldn't go back. We were two adults and two children.
