“Good food, poorly managed establishment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

We visited this establishment late on a Sunday morning. We were seated after about a 15 minute wait. We were promptly told everything they were out of : clean forks, clean glasses, tomato juice (no bloody Mary ), doughnuts, etc. After placing our order we waited an hour for our food and then only got partial orders with our hashbrowns arriving 10 minutes after the rest of our food. This is a small restaurant so it is unclear why they could not plan for the number of people/tables they will serve on a typical Sunday morning. We wasted far too much of our day waiting. The food is good but not worth the hassle and time wasted waiting. We did speak to the manager. She was a bit defensive but did comp our drinks. Still will not return.

“Food fit for royalty, unforutunately wait staff think they are”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

This restaurant is fantastic. The food is fresh and unigue. It's not just tasty, it's also reasonably priced. It is truly food fit for a king or queen...but then the help seems to think that they are royalty.

These are some of the worst waitresses I have ever seen. They are slow and inattentive. It's like the owners went to some debutante school to recruit. Or, they are relatives or girlfriends of the owner. It just doesn't make sense.

How can those who are paid minimally be so ignorant that even if the food is great, the customer has the real power and it's in the tip. It's okay to be a snob if you're first name is Paris and last name is Hilton, but when it hurts your bottom line, you're not a snob, you're just stupid.

“Cute atmosphere and wonderful food!”

I like the ambience and the food is wonderful. Tastefully decorated and a nice place to take friends for lunch. Friday night fish fry is out of this world. Good job!
