Being a local, I try to stay away from the touristy spots downtown during peak seasons. This place however is not one I avoid. Food is always very good and service is always friendly and timely. If it's slammed with folks from the Valley or wherever, I will wait in line unless it's hideous. They are usually pretty quick but if the diners aren't in a hurry to leave, there's no sense in putting pressure on the staff. I'll come back another day as usual. Make sure you try the fried pickles. Quite tasty but don't burn your mouth.

Once a week, every week, our choice for a shopping lunch. Inventive selections and truly wonderful soups. I mean all of them.

It is casual but the ingredients are not. Never rushed, always friendly.

We adore this!

Walked in at 5:30 without a Reservation and we were happy to sit at the Bar. I had the very good salmon special and daughter had a burger that she liked. Good menu selection. Fast courteous service. Nice atmosphere. Fair prices.

We sat outside on a somewhat quiet evening and felt like the service was a bit slow. When our food did come, it was good though felt it was a bit pricey for what it was. Not terribly disappointed but just felt it wasn't worth the spend for us.
