Came here for lunch with locals. Great place in a historic building. Excellent food, at very reasonable prices. I had the grilled chicken and shrimp, which was awesome. Great place for a business lunch.

Very good food, good service. Their hours are a little strange but they are open on weekend nights, most important. Easy to get to.

They do not have a children's menu, but they are very accommodating & you shouldn't have a problem. Remember, they are only open for dinner on Friday & Saturday. Lunch is OK Tues-Sat.
