Another enjoyable brunch - pleasant service and great food! The best fries on the planet!!!!! We stop in often for lunch or brunch - next we've got to try dinner. Downtown Downingtown location but plenty of public meter parking around back.

Spend is high for food that is really not all that special. There is no bar so you need to bring your own libation.

We had this on our radar for several years, but finally got here, and weren't disappointed. Food was excellent - service was decent (early in the evening; still learning the specials). Fresh oysters were crisp, cold, and nicely shucked. Sweet Potato Fritters were excellent, with a little heat. Crab cakes had nice sweet pepper accents, and the ahi tuna was... More

Nice little neighborhood gem... Good food... BYOB. It's small, and somewhat noisy on a weekend night. The tables are tight.. We had a party of 6 and it's more comfortable for four. Nice menu and good specials.

Rather small , but accommodating and welcoming restaurant. The menu varies for the seasons with a fine selection of fish, meats, pork and pasta. Pleasant surroundings with fine service and attention to detail. BYOB as an addition to the menus. Excellent desert selection.

I'm afraid to give "too good" of a review because folks will flock to this place. Ok, I will anyway: Nice little place, park in back. Young crew hustles, is pleasant and professional, and speak of their food offerings with pride. No wonder- food was awesome! Grilled oysters app - best I ever had. Carpaccio- excellent. Rib eye- cooked exactly... More

I was really on the fence between average and poor, but it came down to my perceived value for the quality of the meal and for the price - I have had far better meals at that price. The good: The staff were fantastic and very friendly! The grits were amazing. The field green salad was wonderful. The calamari was... More

The service was very good but overall very over priced place not to mention very loud atmosphere. Ordered the "jumbo" shrimp appetizer for $14 and we received 3 not so jumbo shrimp. My wife ordered the salmon which was good. I ordered the steak medium which came out rare, small and fatty. We came here a year ago and food... More

On the positive side the Service was excellent with the staff being very attentive. We had a nice table that gave us plenty of space. The atmosphere was good although extremely loud. We had difficulty hearing our server. Our appetizer was also very good. I would say it was the highlight of the evening. On the down side, I ordered... More
