“Fantastic lamb chops”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Located on the second floor of Papa Joe's. My wife and I were there the second time in three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed both dining occasions. First time we both got the lamb chops and we both agreed that they were the best we had ever eaten. Second time she had the lamb chops again (same opinion as first time) and I had their red snapper. Wonderful flavors and the snapper was prepared to perfection. Service was very good. Nice menu selection and plenty of food for the price. We will be back to try their other items soon. Restaurant manager, Wayne, and Sous Chef, Ben, will go out of their way to be sure you are satisfied.

“BEWARE $4 coffee. Food worthy of a 2nd try.”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Went for brunch based on personal recommendations by friends. Had the eggs benedict $12 which were very good. Charging $4 for coffee, however, is outrageous! I thought the food pricing was within expected locale range but seriously thought at first that the coffee must be an error. Nope.

Service was spotty. Attentive at first.

Set above the grocery store, it did exude a fun atmosphere. I'll try it again for dinner/lunch but won't be ordering coffee!

“Okay If You Are Not Hungry”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Nice spot up in the balcony on a cold sunny winter day. Service ok. My wife and I ordered the combo lunch ( soup and salad/soup and scallops). The soup is served in a cup. Tasty and small. Salad was about the size of a bowl of creme brûlée. Not enough for 2 hungry birds. My wife was served 2 scallops for $13.00.
I advised the waiter the portions were very small and his response was we could have ordered a combo with 3 items instead of 2. Not exactly the response I was looking for. Total bill including tax with alcohol or drinks, water only $37.35 which includes a $5.00 tip. we had heard a lot about this restaurant but I never like to leave a place and I am still hungry.

“Great food!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

We recently tried this restaurant. We went for the second time in Nov. The food was great, the menu was varied & the service was very good. Both times we went we had the specials & they were delicious.
We sat in the enclosed outside balcony. It was a cold evening, it was very comfortable until the heaters came on. They were a bit hot & stayed on too long so that it became too warm.
They accept reservations & at the time we went, they were open 7 nights a week. Great new restaurant!
