I enjoyed the Thai curry with tofu. My husband had it with Chicken. The tofu was a little tough but the flavor of the dish was really good. I enjoyed the blake's flannel mouth cider too. Waitress was friendly. Parking at meters on street.

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
