$12.00 for regular chicken, black beans and rice. Nothing was tasty. There were cob webs in the corner above head at our table.

Anything with chicken in it will be really good. Parking tough in the little lot and nothing special about the ambiance but worth a repeat visit.

This neat little hole in the wall restaurant is one of the best we have ever been to. Great locals secret but wow the food. Fresh caught Salmon. Wild not farmed. Cole Slaw that just screamed with freshness and flavor as did the wok seared vegetables right out of their garden. Good selection of wine at reasonable prices. The overall... More

Chicken roasting on an open grill, unrivaled homemade sauces, farm raised beef, and the best grilled shrimp anywhere. Not a great wine list, but you can bring your own.

This is the second time for Rimels and I ordered the same great salad the Cobb. Obviously since I came back again for the same thing it must have been very good. The chicken in the salad is still warm and juicy. The other typical Cobb components could not have been better: avocado, bacon lettuce, tomatoes and blue cheese.We ask... More

Small hidden restaurant with 6 tables. Great local seafood and the rotisserie chicken was crisp and well cooked. The slaw is a nice crisp vinegary treat.

We arrived and no one seemed to notice we were there. We asked to be seated. After being seated the waitor took our order... More

We found this through Trip Advisor because Jersey Mike's turned us away for service. This place was busy so they created a space for the 5 of us to sit and eat on the patio. We are on vacation but if we come back we will eat here again. I had the Mahi Mahi tacos and my kids had the... More
