Ordered an app for the table and entree myself. Not a wine drinker but noticed there were many options available which my wife preferred. There is a good selection between vegetarian recipes for those that are always concerned about dietary choices. Highly recommended for dinner...More

Our waiter Greg was extremely personable and attentive. The menu has a wide variety of items. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. Wait time was appropriate for what we ordered. Nice atmosphere.

Pros: Ample parking behind restaurant--some of it is metered. Very good food--good selection for the whole family. Reasonable prices, good value. Cons: Parking lot behind restaurant has many tripping hazards--especially bad behind the bank. Be careful walking to/from your car. Service was slow

The meals here are hearty and you certainly will not leave hungry. I have never had a meal here I did not enjoy. The service is reliably good, and the atmosphere is friendly. I always enjoy it.

I went to eat with my aunt and my grandmother at this restaurant because my grandmother recommended it. She said that she had a great experience last time she went there with another family member on a whim. The service was spectacular and the waitress...More
