Pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere (nothing fancy) and the quality of the food. It's located in the back of an old store, next to the railroad tracks; nice covered, outside seating. Food prices were reasonable as was the bottled wine. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Stopped by on a whim last night..didn't know what to expect. When you walk in the front you think it's a deli...lots of stuff stacked. Then in the back are tables and a bar. Or sit outside on patio. Menu is quite varied.. Sandwiches..burgers...sides..appetizers..good draft beer..wine..cocktails. Step son got a French dip..he said best ever cause the roll was soft and not too crusty ( he has braces). Husband got chicken salad on a croissant..I got battered cod on a bun. French fries were so good..taste home made. Definitely will be going back.

Basic grill fare, a bit too much fried stuff. Quality is good. Staff friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the strong greasy fried smell in the air that permeates the place. The outside is a great option on a nice day.

Excellent seafood. Dishes had fresh, quality ingredients that made each dish delicious. The outdoor seating area was cozy. Heating lamps and cozy blankets were offered. The coconut cream pie looked excellent.

Good place to meet friends for lunch. Loved the Ruben, other sandwiches are great and you can have a glass of wine too.
