A simple, old-fashioned place with just good food. A Greek touch to most of the offerings (since it's a Greek owner I guess that makes sense). Quality is excellent and quantity/speed nice. We sat outside and enjoyed it.

They really don't make restaurants like this anymore. A great family restaurant that offers excellent 'old school' menu choices. Comfortable, casual, and the staff will make you feel right at home here.
