We love coming here for a girls' lunch or a family and friends dinner. My 2 favorite items are both appetizers...the Brie with apples and Frangelico praline sauce and the Cajun Shrimp and Grits. I always order at least one of these items. Can't wait to dine there again.

The Channel 70 Video Productions crew stopped in after work. I had my usual cheeseburger and fries and it was delicious. And, service here keeps getting better and better. Street parking-only is a minus. Overall, a keeper.

I had a really delicious Ruben Sandwich. We had a late lunch here on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. The service was great and it was a nice place to have lunch with some friends who we had not seen in awhile. The Ruben was made made perfectly using lean meat. One of the best I have had. Others had the... More

Based on the food and service this place deserves an "Excellent" rating but like a large number of other reviews here have stated we came in for lunch, just my wife and me, and were told by the not so friendly hostess that they did not have any tables available but we could sit in the bar. We looked around... More

Business lunch for six was very nice. Staff was attentive and the food was well above average. This is a friendly place to take friends for an afternoon glass of wine, an exceptional snack or a full dinner. Consistent, pricey, good selection and comfortable. This is an anchor of the fabulous restaurants in downtown Brevard.

My friend and I stopped by for lunch on Friday. We arrived at 12:30 and the hostess told us there would be a wait, or we could sit at the high tables in the bar. We chose to sit in the bar. The service was fast and friendly. Our waitress told us about the fish and chips special, they have... More

We visited the restaurant on a Tuesday evening fairly early so there was no wait. I would recommend a reservation because it seems to be a local favorite. The restaurant is right off Brevard's Main Street where there is free parking avail. Upon arrival we were greeted by twinkle lights on a nice size outdoor covered porch. The place was... More

Whether you're hoping to enjoy the ambiance of our indoor dining room, our locally crafted wood bar top, or the fresh breezes of our covered outdoor patio - there is room for everyone. Our atmosphere is inviting for romantic evenings, cocktails with friends, and family gatherings. We pride ourselves on serving locally roasted coffee from The Brown Bean, and we offer several local brews on tap and by the bottle.
