This is an often overlooked spot in the heart of Overland Park. The food is fresh and house made with something for everyone in the family. Great bar area, with an elegant but comfortable atmosphere, which my wife and I have visited after dinner elsewhere.

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
