I went on Wednesday night when they were having a burger and a beer special. It was very good and the special price was good also. Great place to eat. I have been there previously when I had lots of their different small plates. Great!

Let me start by sharing that our server, Nicki, was our ambassador to exceptional service. She was most attentive, personable, and knows the menu. Clearly, my favorite was the mussels, which were on a par with their counterpart in Bruges, Belgium. Our other small plates...More
