We came here on a whim and absolutely enjoyed it! Food was good and venue was fantastic. Go for lunch if you can it's a lot cheaper. Dinner is pricey!

Great spot for lunch. We dined on the patio. It was a little warm but nice to be outdoors and people watch. The burger was delicious and the service was good even though we ate during a busy time. Bathrooms were downstairs so that was...More

We visited here for Easter. The service was good and the atmosphere is fun. The food is also good and you can order your meal so that you receive endless family style servings.

We had lunch here both days we were in town. The food is good and the service was great. We tried several menu items and were not disappointed. For a busy restaurant there was not a wait for either a seat, service or food.

Yes, we do! We have a gluten free menu and a vegetarian menu available. You can view them online ahead of time if you like. Then when you arrive, just request the menu from the hostess when you are seated. Thank you!
