Waitstaff was welcoming and genuine. Excellent Bloody Mary to start off lunch. Terrific selection of sandwiches for lunch. For its location, the portions and pricing are excellent.

Sorry I do not recall if they did. If you have a dietary restriction you should call the restaurant directly. They seemed very accommodating if possible.

I would call the restaurant and talk to the owner to be on the safe side. He will probably prepare a special dish for you if you let him know when you will be dining there.
