Everything was great except for the wasps swarming around my head.. i know its not a big deal to some but if i get stung i end up in the hospital.

Please spray for hive.. its got to be there somewhere in the corner. And that is my favorite spot.

Service was very very slow, once we asked for a happy hour menu the waiter became short and irritated with us and we didn’t see him again for the rest of the evening. Had to flag people down to get help.

Shame, the food was pretty good.

Our new favorite brunch spot! We sat out on the patio and had a great time. Our server, Harris, was absolutely fantastic and the manager Hayley went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Can’t wait for next weekend!

Spacious patio with fans kept us socially distant and cool enough, despite it being a very hot and humid day. The lobster omelette was delish and the service was great. My only criticism is that the spinach and artichoke dip was bland and did not taste freshly made. Stale chips also. But overall, we were pleased with our meal and service.

It was a very good experience but I had to wait a bit too long to be seated so I asked to be seated: I had a reservation. I had to sit quickly due to a back problem. I sat a while with no attention for quite a while before I finally asked for a menu. Then it was a brunch menu at 1:30 and I had to ask for a lunch menu. Otherwise, all was perfect.

All very good, as always, but I ordered the chicken/advocado sandwich for lunch. It did not state on the menu that raw onions were on the sandwich - I do not eat onions, so in order to remove these, my sandwich fell apart. I would suggest that either onions are listed on the menu, or they not include them in the sandwich. My two friends thoroughly enjoyed their lunch.

This was our first visit and it was amazing. I have a shellfish allergy and our waiter Harris and the manager made sure that my food was prepared as safely as possible. The food was delicious and did I mention our waiter Harris was amazing. He's friendly, humorous and checked back often on us. I would recommend this location to everyone.

Harris was our server. We started out on the patio but moved inside due to the heat. He couldn’t have been any more helpful, polite and attentive in both places.
The food was great and the wine was better.

Wanted to try new burger, was excellent!
Was disappointed onion rings are no longer a side order. Bummer. Bring them back?
Yes, skinny ones come with the burger but we loved your previous, thick cut onion rings!
Please???????🤞🤞🤞
