Had very good turkey soup and half pimiento sandwich...someone else had an okay burger and our third person ordered the chicken salad which she liked very much. I did not care for the too loud blues music and the general crummy atmosphere. Service was good. I don't think we will return.

Service was great and the food is plenty. Small setting and usually a wait but there are shops all around to check out while you wait.
