Went there on a Friday night show night after calling and confirming they had a table for 4 immediately available. The table was available but service apparently was not. We were seated upstairs and it took 15-20 minutes before we saw a waiter/waitress to even get us water. We placed our order, nothing too complicated...2 burgers, 1 turkey burger, 1... More

This place is a hidden gem. Comfort food is their specialty and they deliver. They also have great specials throughout the week. I dined on a Wednesday and had a specialty martini for $5. We had a long wait because there was only one server working. Overall a really good experience.

This is a small family run place with a variety of inexpensive light eats (burgers, tacos etc). Tuesday is "Taco Day when they are half price. The food is fresh and the eatery is clean and comfortable.

Party of eight. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered, Not all meals came at the same time. Veggie lasagna was good. Gumbo was good. Wanted to have an upscale appearance. Did add gratuity to bill (did not mention that they did that, we just happen to notice.)

As a business nobody will complain to you if you are high priced; only if the service or food doesn't match the charge. This was a nice little downtown food experience. In my mind it was bigger than a café so more like a small restaurant and definitely at the higher end of the food price range. (3 people plus... More

Small, intimate, downtown restaurant with good service and good selection. Great stop before Schuster Center performances.

My wife and I have eaten there several times and mostly like it. The lamb chops are usually good (except one time) and they make a pretty good burger for lunch. The fried asparagas is really good and the service is good as well.

I went there for a night out. The service was terrible. It is almost always terrible. Don't go here if you have plans after dinner. This is total chaos - you will wait years for a drink and eons for food. At least one of the bartenders has a very nasty attitude. And don't write in or talk to the... More

We discovered this place when we got to our concert very early and had an hour to spare. We dropped in for a drink and dessert. We will have to remember it for the future because the dinners they were serving looked good!

Was looking forward to having lunch there- disappointed---- food was just OK, greasy - had no tea (server found 1 green tea bag so I had that) and only regular coffee was available. My friend was served a container of salt with her coffee???? Presentations are nice and décor is cute. Our food was turkey Reuben and chicken pattie sandwich... More
