Great location and service, food is great and well priced. Portions are large, you will not leave hungry. Staff is great and like people. Make reservations for large groups in the evening.

Although a little noisy, the outside table was perfect. Had chicken enchiladas & mozzarella stuffed, bacon wrapped shrimp. Yes! Very good food and definitely too much for us. Waiter was helpful & attentive as well. Will give breakfasts a try for sure.

Yes we do! Our website has all our menus. Trip advisor won't let me post the actual site. But it's what you would think it would be, the whole name of the restaurant. We look forward to seeing and serving you in August!
