This is a nice lunch spot with great food and a good beer selection. The service is friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. The whole place is nicely decorated with big comfy chairs. It was a good place to get out of winter weather.

The food is always good here. The place is clean and the staff are right there to take care of you. Portion sizes are good. Desserts are also delicious. They also have entertainment during some of the evenings at least.
