Great food and fantastic drinks. Prices are more than fair and the establishment is clean. What sets this place apart from others? The service! If they didn’t have something one visit they get it for your next. Always smiling. Always gracious! Would recommend highly!

Nice little bar and restaurant. Food is always good. The service is timely and friendly. The cook takes pains to be sure the customers are satisfied on any special needs, in particular.

Maybe we picked a bad night or made poor menu selections but we were disappointed, The server was friendly and helpful but the food just didn't measure up. We probably won't return.
