Great food and drinks. Got busy during lunch and it was a large enough space that you didn’t feel uncomfortable.

Great food and great service. The Filet with Shrimp special was excellent, and the new roaster, loaded corn side dish was better than expected.

Lovely ambience. There are various games you can take to your table to play. They have a few types of drink flights. Breakfast sandwiches are good but small. Went for brunch but brunch, breakfast, and all day menus were all available for ordering.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were treated with friendly faces and gestures. Reset in a small room so it was quiet and we could have a good conversation. All of the servers were great the food was phenomenal and we enjoyed the entire experience

My husband and I ate dinner here on November 21, 2022. It was our first visit but not our last. Our server, Miguel, was wonderful. It was my birthday and Miguel took great care of me. Our food and drinks were delicious. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

Lovely little place - sat outside in the back which was nice. There was only one person waiting tables but she was pretty efficient and kept things moving. I had the short ribs and polenta - very good. The ribs were cooked to perfection. Could have used a bit more seasoning but that could also just have been me and my palate. Wine selection was decent. Would definitely recommend for an intimate semi-casual date night.
