I had lunch here while in town for a conference. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food good. I would recommend this place if you are tired of the same old same old restaurant experience.

Really unique downtown restaurant. Food was good - daughter loved their crispy fries and the waiter recommended local draft beer that I enjoyed very much. The side salad was excellent as well. Decor very interesting and it was a nice spot for a tourist.

Went here recently with my niece and sister-in-law. Very enjoyable, pleasant atmosphere, and yummy food! Salmon is delicious. I will definitely be back. The service was good, he hovered too much to start with but it got better through the evening.

Menu is varied but the food is just OK. One in our party felt her back getting wet ... there was dripping from condensation on the ceiling. Server was mostly absent. Some parts of our lunch arrived piping hot, other elements not. This very ordinary...More

I don't have a clue but have been told that breakfast is a draw to the restaurants since they have a good breakfast/brunch menu.
