Food was ok, not terrible. The smell of smoke is so overwhelming. I wouldn't go back. Nice waitress but that was the only positive take away from this.

We enjoyed the food and waitress was very nice. The restaurant could stand with a good cleaning and update. We tried 4 different sausages (all good), potato dumplings, red beet salad, and grilled cheese sandwich. I would return for the food. It seemed rather expensive.
