Meg is an exceptional manager and it shows in her reflection of her team and wait staff. They’re just enough attentive without being meddling. Offered great choices for drinks and while their food is good, they could help you in the right direction for whatever it is you might be in the mood for.

Love it here. Thanks Meg.

Good food and drinks. Great casual place. Some parts of the menu changes seasonally so if you are someone who eats the same thing over and over your items may not be available. However the changes are welcome additions to their base menu. Will go again.

Food was not good! Especially their barbecue options .

Server didn’t offer us another drink or more water, but to her defense, the restaurant didn’t have enough staff. It wasn’t too busy either.

I would probably only go back for drinks only !

First impression, beautiful decor. I am a chef so I love to try new spots anywhere I go. I happened upon this restaurant by accident but it was wonderful. I didnt know what to order because everything looked fabulous. I had the southern fried chicken...BEST CHICKEN IVE EVER HAD. I love tequila, went for the hola amigo, it was delicious and pretty.

Food was so good, drinks were amazing, and the patio was super quiet. I was wondering if it would be loud since it’s bordering the Main Street but besides some beeping cars it was overall very quiet and pleasant. Cars beeping are totally out of Lucy’s control so we fully enjoyed our time there.
