We went for brunch on the weekend, but finding Pamela's jammed we ended up here instead. What a great find! The food was delicious, the service prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere quite pleasant. Definitely will go back again!

They have a menu that is unlike most places. You can get different, out of the ordinary dishes here that will amaze you.

This is a mid range local chain with 3 or 4 locations. Typical menu with pasta, burgers a couple of fish entrees. Service is generally good and food is as expected.
