The raspberry wheat beer was delicious. The Reuben and Norm burger was marginal. The plates were too small as the food was overflowing. Waitress was attentive and efficient.

The staff was very good, actually bent over backwards when our food needed to be returned because it was not hot. As well the servings are far too big. No need to have so much food, speaks to healthy eating. The chef needs to balance standard american food with urban healthy daily specials.

What a great find in this sleepy little town. Well, we were there in late February and it was sleepy then... The menu was diverse and food was better than expected. The place was friendly and cozy and we'll definitely be going back~
