This was a wonderful meal after a movie. It was relaxed and laid back atmosphere. The wings were spectacular, parmesan peppercorn, and the roasted Brussel sprouts were phenomenal. We also has the sandwiches and Caesar salads. Drinks arrived quickly and the waitstaff was fantastic. We will definitely be back.

The food was very good. The prices may be a bit high (perhaps not). The service was very good. The atmosphere was very good.

Very helpful staff. This is a typical American diner. Food and drink was of a good quality. Served our needs as somewhere close to the hotel to eat
