You should visit this location. We have enjoyed this charming little restaurant so much! What a great little secret! Fresh food and homemade goodness! For the Fall season their soups are essential! This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a nice meal.

We have been here a few times for light lunches and dinners. If you like the Canadian dish, poutine, try it here. My meals have tasted and looked homemade, including the desserts. I have ordered the chicken pot pie, poutine, pulled pork sandwich and two of the desserts. The service was fine, drinks were served in a timely manner, and the servers are pleasant. It is a local, casual restaurant and that is what to expect from it. We like to try and keep small businesses afloat. As mentioned previously by another reviewer, this building has housed many other restaurants. The decor is a little basic but it looks like they are trying to find a cohesive theme.

Family friendly, but that's about the only good thing I can say. There was no one at the front of the house when we got there on a Friday night & we ended up waiting for about 5 or 10 min for someone to seat us. One table had a laptop sitting on it that looked like it belonged to one of the owners ... That they had forgotten to put up when things got busy. Service was slow and took our order to the wrong table before bringing it back to us. Food was ok but appeared to be mostly frozen.

We enjoy supporting local restaurants. This place has changed names several times so on to this version. Pulled up at 6:30 pm and few cars in lot. We were the only ones in dining room. Wanted some drinks... server had to get manager to tell us what kind of vodka they had... Okay, we order their special prime rib medium well and medium with loaded baked potatoes and broccoli. Broccoli was good. Potato was not completely cooked. First slice of prime rib was medium well, the rest was rare or raw and we had to cut it with a butter knife. No bread. Not planning to return.

This place has been so many different names and not always the best food, so I wasn't sure I wanted to go . Went and had soup ( clam chowder ) and it was very good, gonna go back for next soup of day. Husband likes sandwiches so I think we will go again. It deserves another shot.
