The hotel we stayed at suggested we eat here. We fully enjoyed ourselves and the atmosphere was just right. It wasn't crowded and the food was perfect. The next we are in the area we will be eating here again.

Looking for something different...not fast, pizza, subs, etc. Should be rated higher on tripadvisor. What a terrific choice for a tasty and fresh variety without breaking the bank. The efficient and friendly service demonstrated a well orchestrated team as they handled a nice lunch crowd easily. You'll not go away hungry. Try it :-).......BTW..this gem is easy to miss as the ample parking and cafe are separated by a small building.

When a traffic accident took us off our beaten path, we decided to stop in at this gem of a restaurant that we always seem to forget about. Upon arriving, they said they had 2 holiday parties that were scheduled in about 45 minutes and not accommodating any walk-ins.. We promised to eat and leave if they could fit us in....and they did. :) The lobster ravioli was incredibly rich and delightful, while my husband's crab cake/filet was the perfect combo to satisfy all his tastebuds. But the BEST part of our meal was the mussels marinara....absolutely the BEST marinara sauce that I have had in years (so thankful they served it with a spoon so I could scoop up every bite). The server was very attentive even though she was busy setting up for the parties. We will not forget about this place in the future.

the place looks like it is not the best location. When you go in it is very pleasant and the food is very good. gourmet flair and tiny patio is nice on a summer or fall eve. We would recommend it to anyone.It has NO liquor lisc. so bring your own with you.
