The food was very good, however, the service was incredibly slow. The atmosphere is casual. The slow service was really a bummer here.

We came for lunch, the server took our drink order for water then avoided our s including eye contact thereafter. After being unable to catch anyone to take our order we left money for the water and exited the restaurant

Nice local bistro serving good solid food. I did a pulled pork sandwich which was very tasty. The place is open air but it is very noisy. Set in Lung shopping center it is small and quaint. Good food and our service was fine.

Two of us had the fish sandwich (ahi) the third had the teriyaki burger - all fantastic. And the fries were wonderful - all so fresh, waitress was very attentive. Could not have asked for a better lunch..... until we added the pineapple cobbler!

We arrived for Happy Hour and stayed for dinner. The Mai-Tai’s were great along with the chicken wings and fries. The dinner menu changes but if the Ribs or Braised Beef are on the menu do try them. For desert the Bananas Foster is great....More
