We really liked the way it was decorated, things to read and look at on the walls, etched glass, and even a model train running thru the restaurant over your heads. It is very clean, friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. The food was good,...More

We go out with a group ( about a dozen) of retired teachers each month. Would there be a place to seat us, maybe a bit out of the way? Sometimes noise is a problem in restaurants and we have trouble hearing each other! We love your food, and don't have trouble with just two of us. But it is harder in a group. Thanks!
