Meal came out quickly but had to wait 20 minutes or so for a table but it was well worth the wait. Sports on t.v. Good range of tasty food, good vibe and friendly accommodating staff. Have been back twice, always a good experience

We did not have a reservation, but had no problem getting in a little after the main lunch rush. If you can do a late lunch / early dinner I think you would be fine. I checked the website, but did not see an email address... More
