    Great food and great drinks. Small building so it’s not the greatest in space but their service has you look over that flaw.

    The people were lovely and attentive. The food was fresh but just mediocre in taste. Generous Portions but meat was tough both the chicken and the pork special.

    This is a standby favorite. Pros: great menu, love the food, servers are very friendly and attentive. Cons: the room is really tight and not easy to maneuver for diners or servers, and the restroom is not very accessible.

    Very small and tight, limited menu and service was not attentive. Would have loved another drink and dessert but decided to go somewhere later due to service.
