Good food, good service. Staff are engaging attentive and service is timely. Food is always excellent. They usually have live music outside on Friday nights and it is a good place to hang out with friends. Pretty low key place, good vibes.

Great spot! Everyone so friendly. Met a number of locals. Bartender, Steve was very engaging and made a solo stranger feel at home. Oh, incredibly diverse menu! May be our hangout once we move in September.

We ate here on the advise of the woman at DelMonaco Winery. Kind of a "Hole in the wall" place (in a good way). Very cool rustic barnwood interior! Lots of character! The food was very good and the prices were excellent! A little hard...More

Loved the fish and chips, the bread. We always have to stop in and pick up the spinach dip to take to out-of-town friends. Nice selection on the menu, great service and drinks.
