Loved the atmosphere. Food and drinks are inspiring, and flow with the seasons. Highly recommend reservations on weekends as they seem to get pretty full. Even full the service was great and staff friendly

I've been here twice and won't go back unless a friend suggests and really wants to go. I just didn't think it was very gluten-free friendly.

Looked for a restaurant near the theater in Berwick. 2 of us had ribeye steak (they had run out of strip steak at 5:30 PM). It was served with a chickpea mashup which overpowered the remainder of the plate.

I wanted to like this place, they have a nice selection of local beers on tap which is a plus to me but that's where it ends. I've been there twice before and it was okay but this last time will be my last time....More

We started with the crab Rangoon appetizer. We had the fish tacos and the chicken pot pie for our main course. Then for dessert we had the flourless torte. The crab was good, hot and delicious. The fish tacos were great and flavorful. These came...More

This was our first time at this restaurant, and what a surprise. We chose to go on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised that there was no wait. The interior/ambiance is all bare wood and beams and is set up like a tavern, but...More
