Small quaint place, friendly service and great food!! We stayed at the B&B that's a block away and so glad we tried it. They even brought out dessert with a candle and sang Happy birthday to my girl.

We had an outstanding meal with excellent service. We had mussels. prime rib sandwich, and buffalo wing pizza. All wonderful. Too bad they were closed on Monday or we would have gone back.
