Chicken Parm was huge, enough for 2, very fesh sauce and tasty. Beef stroganoff was good also. Cherry cobbler with ice cream was excellent. Nothing fancy but all very good tasting. Lovely sitting outside too!

The ambiance is fine but the food left us wanting. The chicken was overcooked and dry, we wondered if they had used frozen chicken and not been watching. The salads were just OK.

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with excellent service. We had Huevos Rancheros, pancakes, French Toast and eggs. Everything was excellent. Our teenagers liked it so much that they asked to come back again. This is really rare!!

Two meals. Two great experiences. Service is very nice and friendly. Not fast though. Pancakes, eggs, salads. All excellent. We got half portions and it was plenty. Popular place. Groups come in and back things up Highly recommended

They have beer for sure, and I think wine also. They have a little 3-4 seat bar inside so I'm sure they wine as well. We were on the patio with our dogs, so didn't see.
