Avoid at lunch unless you have a two hour lunch hour. Been there twice in the last month both times had to wait 45 minutes for food and then had to eat and run to get back to the work within my lunch hour. Not very relaxing. Went a second time thinking first time was a fluke but Happened again. I don't plan on going back unless I go back when I am on vacation when I don't have to worry about the time.

I attended a dinner meeting here. It was not a typical banquet and small four top tables was a bit odd for a meeting, but it's really all they could do. Also, with a speaker with audio visual equipment, it was a bit tight. The staff was excellent! The food was very good. I chose the pork which was very good. It was accompanied buy pureed vegetables, which I don't really care for. The server was happy to accommodate me with a side dish of pasta primavera which was very good.

Staff at the Pearce Arrow Museum recommended this place. The exterior is very interesting and I would have been happy if the menu had said something about the buildings history (I suspect that it started out as a filling station) Service was fast and friendly. The menu is kind of small, but I cannot complain about that.

The food was somewhat better than mediocre, certainly NOT excellent. We were not offered a choice of sides to go with our sandwiches. It seems that every sandwich comes with quinoa salad, which is probably OK if you like quinoa. I don't and found that salad to be bland. My sandwich was also a bit on the bland side.

The salads that were delivered to a table near ours looked fantastic, so if I go again, I will try one.

If you go here and do not like it, then there is something wrong with you. Always packed on Food Truck Tuesday's. Have to get there early for a place to set with live music. A myriad of food trucks here. A great place to see some people you haven't seen for awhile. We always enjoy it!
