I was drawn in by the beautiful outside patio which is private and cozy. The patio is surrounded by climbing flowers and lattice , great atmosphere. The problem was the food. I ordered the mahi mahi special which was described as being grilled and served with pineapple and rice. The fish was overdone and covered in soy sauce; there were about two tablespoons of bland rice and a teaspoon of canned pineapple . Very disappointing.

Not quite a diner, not quite a bistro, rather a very delightful place with a very pleasant indoor room with fun artwork and a lovely outdoor area ringed with beautiful flowers. The food is quite decent, the service very pleasant and the prices are a real value compared to other places in the area.

Food is fine, but the fun spot in the outdoor space in the back. Under a covered awning, the space is outside, but not too hot or too cold.

It's been a little over two years since my last visit to The Driver's Seat. My earlier comments as well as suggestions made by others must have been heard. The menu is vastly improved as is the quality of the food served. The portions are however quite a bit smaller than what most restaurants serve and the prices have increased. If the weather permits, take a table on their patio.

Stopped off for a quick lunch and were very disappointed with both the food and the atmosphere. We had 4 different dishes all of which were bland and unexciting. The service was efficient but the staff but cold.
