The location is convenient. The food was really good and the service was great. We went for lunch and my meal alone was $12.00. Slightly pricey for sandwich but it was worth it. Highly recommend going.

We ordered the crab dip and it was covered in parmesan cheese. You had to move the cheese to taste the dip. My husband ordered a burger medium rare and it was so raw, like it was cooked for a minute. I ordered the portobello...More
