Service was superb. Very friendly and sweet waitress. Didn't have my first selection for appetizer so they comped my second choice. Salad could use some croutons. Food was average.

We had lunch after touring the museum. Service is outstanding, we had a Reuben with fries and potato salad (2 plates). Very good. The desserts are homemade. We will return.

The food is always fresh and hot, and never disappoints. Yes, you may have to wait a little bit to get your food, but its definitely worth the wait. Very friendly atmosphere, and the homemade cheesecake is highly recommended!
