Go fairly early on a Friday night or you'll have a wait, and there's not a lot of waiting room; but the menu was varied, and the food was delicious. We were going for just a light meal so all ordered sandwiches. The sausage sandwich got raves - a little spicy, a little messy to eat, very filling; the portobello mushroom sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich were also perfect! We saw nearby diners enjoying their sushi trays, which were beautifully prepared...definitely going back to try a real dinner.

The wait staff was very friendly and helpful; the wait for the food was about 5 minutes longer than we expected, but it was well worth the wait.

The place is obviously a favorite with the locals, always a good sign, and on a raw rainy night was like a homey warm family room, very busy and welcoming.

Every time we've been there's always been a little bit of a wait & the reason why is because this place is SO GOOD. It's got a pretty varied menu with sushi as well as sandwiches. Everything's a bit on the spicy side (which is a bit of a turn-off for me) BUT I've asked for the sushi MINUS the spicy stuff & they've accommodated. Drinks - awesome. My husband LOVES their dirty martini *&* their HOT WINGS!! You DON'T want to miss those if you like HOT STUFF. I'm a fan of their oysters. Varied kinds & the waitstaff will inform you as to what & how they are. Great place!
