Stopped in on a Friday for lunch. I had the chicken fajitas. Very good with plenty to take home. My husband had a turkey club with French fries. All very good. Loved the fries. Definitely will be back. Great waiter too!!

Located near the many antique shops of Putnam, this place is good for lunch. I had a very fresh fish and chips. My mother had a nice salad with grilled chicken. Both meals were fresh and tasty. Full bar available. Clean restrooms.

We were allowed to bring our small dog on the patio after asking fellow diners if there were any objections.

We were here for lunch and have to say, it is really "someplace special". Food was fresh and cooked just right. A good menu selection from sandwiches to entrées. Our server Galen was attentive and courteous. We will go back again
