We've been coming to Geer St Garden for a while now (food is always delicious), but the last two times we've been the service from the waiter has been awful. Very inattentive, slow, and had to ask for our checks each time. Also, during our...More

An interesting restaurant in what used to be a gas station. We found it to be very noisy though, however we were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was polite and friendly. We had some fish tacos and they were excellent! My wife had the...More

We stopped for lunch here yesterday and found a really good fried chicken and sourdough waffle plate. The sourdough waffle was lighter than other places and the fried chicken was juicy and well presented. Complimented by pecans and butter this was an unexpected good meal.

For some reason my food didn't look as good as it does in all of the photos. It was fine, but for the price I thought it was a little overpriced. Don't go here if you want to be able to have a conversation. It's...More

I visited with a group of friends and we were fortunate to get the one larger table inside. The food was excellent, but I will say there isn't a large selection, so hope they have something that calls to you. The atmosphere was good, not...More

Yes, just google the name and city and click on images, it'll come up, the building has garage doors. I'd post pics here for you but it won't let me attach any.
