We highly recommend this resturant for their great food and friendly staff and atmosphere! Rather hard to find with construction in area, but well worth the walk.

Booked here over the Internet, being e mailed back at almost midnight the evening before my booking to confirm. Well done, and important for a diner coming into town on a Saturday evening knowing it will be busy. Food is very good across the menu...More

Hi Marcie! We have piano six nights a week during the off season (no Tuesday) and every night during summer. It runs from 7-9 at least and later as there is demand. We look forward to seeing you!
