We stopped in for dessert! The place was full and their was only one cook and one server. I felt sorry for them. I suppose if you were uptight and in a hurry you would have been bothered. But not us. The staff was wonderful!...More

I had heard about the restaurant from a co-worker. The food was delicious & reasonably priced. Only suggestion is that they out something on the menu about the salmon being seasonal.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Not a lot of choices in Copper Center :), but here the hamburgers, salads, and grilled cheese were super. Our waitress, Lex, was very cool !
