I had just moved to Easley and was attending the Farmer Market next door when I found this wonderful place. Totally did not expect the quality or selection of food. This is in a perfect location and the wait staff is very personable. Well deserved Certi of Excellence.

The food is good, the people are friendly, and the prices are reasonable. They have daily specials and local brews. It's easy to get a decent meal for $10.

Stopped in for lunch, food was great. Service slow, but it appears there are only two folks working...doing it all. Guess they are starving artists! Good value, will come again.
