Food came out hot, fast, and delicious. We ordered everything from nachos and hot dogs to roasted chicken and fish fry. Some of the best fries and mashed potatoes we've ever had. Great location too!

Stopped in for a quick bite and it was well worth it. We sat at the bar and ordered the Lobster Mac & Cheese among other things and it was delicious. Service was great and food came out fast. I recommend it.

This place was so good we went back twice. Some of the best calamari I've had. The poached pear salad was outstanding. It was just dumb luck we went there but it was excellent.
