We ate dinner here and came back the next day for lunch! Everything we had was super. Fantastic house salad. Delish butternut squash bisque. Great fried cod.

we ate dinner here and the variety of food was good - the staff was excellent and the food was delicious - little cramped in there but it is a small building and they make it work.

Always a unique special, but my favorite is the Open Face Beef Tenderloin! They get busy so you may have to wait, but it's worth it! Or belly up to the bar where you can enjoy your dinner too.

No, unfortunately they don’t take reservations. You put your name in and wait. If you arrive fairly early, 5:30 or so, the wait shouldn’t be too long.
