Nice place, great service, diversified menu, I think it's too pricey for our community. Not only pricey, but very small portions seemed the food was more about presentation not portions or value. Will probably not go back again.

It's a small but quaint little place located in the old part of town. It has every wine you could want and food is good. Owner usually greets each table when she is there. Its more of an adult atmosphere.

One of the nicer places in our area with good quality food. Their wine marinated burger is probably one of the best burgers I have ever eaten.
