Pretty much as advertised. Great comfort food. The fried chicken was done perfect. Breading was light, a little spicy, with the chicken not overcooked. Great selection of wines and beers. The added treat was some live music with a very good singer and guitarist. Made the price even better.

We met friends there on a Monday night and thought at first because it is a small place, that the band would be so loud that you could not hear yourself think but it was right the opposite. The band was great and the fried chicken and bottle of wine was just the perfect evening to enjoy our friends,

It is pretty tough for me to decide if the fired chicken or Rose was better….after some serious thought and angst the Rose wins out. But then I thought…wait a minute…if the waitress had not brought me a taste (well let’s be honest, more than one taste) then I never would have ended up finding two wines I absolutely had to get a bottle (well let’s be honest, more than one bottle) of to enjoy at home…so really the service as the start followed closely by Rose and fried chicken. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and brought several tastes to the tables of wine she thought we might enjoy. You can get them by the glass or by the taste. We enjoyed an appetizer, a few main meals, and deserts. They were all to die for. Highly recommend their signature dish the fired chicken. The meals are decent sized portions and three of us were fine with a cup of soup (best tomato soup I have ever had…and I do not say that lightly) and two entrees. Sit, enjoy, taste, and take home a bottle or two or three or a case.

this was a business dinner and they are large tables to easily accomodate a party of 10. Tasty appetizers that are not your typical chain fare. This restaurant is close to the quarry market, but not in the actual market shopping center. It is important to know that because you can see this restaurant from Basse road and there are lots of new shopping centers adjacent to the quarry.

Also, if you are ordering red wine, I would recommend opening up the bottle and letting it breathe for 15 minutes.

This place does a good job at spanning between casual bar atmosphere and a nice restaurant. The food was really good and not pretentious, the beer was cold... you can't really mess up beer I suppose. The wait-staff was very friendly and on-point. All around a great atmosphere.
