My husband and I just had lunch at The Observatory, and we were impressed. The soup of the day was one of the best soups I’ve ever had at a restaurant...better than homemade! We also had a very tasty buffalo chicken wrap and yummy fries. The food is fresh and very well-made! And bonus, it’s also very affordable, the staff is polite, and it’s a cozy place on a rainy day.

It is a very popular restaurant, there is always a wait unless you go at off hours.They have good food with good prices and service is always prompt and friendly.
They also have a decent happy hour menu. Definitely recommended.

We found this restaurant by chance, so glad that we did. The front part of the restaurant was packed but we chose to sit in the bar. The restaurant has a very relaxed vibe and the menu had something for everyone. We ordered the andouille mac and cheese for my mac and cheese lover friend who said it was delicious. Her husband ordered the elk burger and said it was cooked perfect and I ordered the chicken linguine in sage cream and YUM! We also had a few different drinks that we all great. Service was fantastic, our server helped us with picking great items. Parking is a little hard as you have to find it on the street.
